Seeing Tomorrow Cleveland Premiere
If you knew your life would end tomorrow, what would you do to get one more day? In the near future, online dating has been replaced by genetic matching and ordered dates to artificial lifeforms called Companions. Capable of giving anything a real person can (except sex), Companions are as normal as downloading music.
Jeremiah Paris, a lonely, ordinary accountant orders a "skinjob", seeking only someone to talk to, someone he can be himself with. What he gets is a fireball with a mission. A woman looking to right a wrong done to her three years earlier by her fellow companions. With less than 24 hours before she is sentenced back to the database, she goes on a rampage for revenge, and nothing will stop her.
If you love the sound of that, don't miss the Seeing Tomorrow premiere at Atlas Cinema 7 Theater on April 24th at 7pm. The web series will feature the music of Winslow within their musical soundtrack. Don't miss this premiere, which will include a live performance by the band! Visit www.facebook.com/seeingtomorrow for more info.
