ABSTRACT
In an alternate version of our world diverging from our own timeline in 1952, a medical breakthrough has allowed the human lifespan to be extended by a century. The breakthrough, which sees an army of "clones" raised until young adulthood and harvested as organ donors for the mortal population, leads viewers to Kathy, Tommy, and Ruth, three such "clones" together from birth at a boarding school who seek to form a love triangle to exploit a rumored loophole in the system and prolong their existences.
