CGiii Comment

Full credit must be given for the idea...

The execution is admirable despite the tiny budget.

Rognard definitely has talent - it's a pity that he hasn't made more...someone give him a budget!

The(ir) Blurb...

In a nightmarish future, the wealthy elite maintain The Circle, a stratum of society that can use technology for regeneration, although it's unclear if a person is regenerated into reality or if this New Life is a cyber world. Thomas Steiner is regenerated, thanks to his mother, and it seems her goal is for him to lose his homosexuality. He awakens from his regeneration with memories of Kazo, a man he loved. He goes in search of him. But, was Kazo ever real? And what will mother make of this son who leaves the safety of The Circle in search of something else?
