This Canadian TV show deals with a very interesting subject: human clones and related moral and identity issues. By now there are two seasons with ten episodes each.
Sarah Manning witnesses the suicide of a woman who seems to look exactly like her. She decides to take on the woman’s identity who she finds out is Beth Childs, a cop. Soon she finds out that there are more doppelgänger. Not only do those women look like her, they share the same DNA. It turns out that Sarah, Beth and all the others are clones. Sarah struggles to win back her daughter whom she left with her own former foster-mother and has to cope with several problems arising. She can’t keep up Beth’s identity and on top a killer shows up, trying to liquidate all the clones. In the course of the second season a religious group gets more and more involved. On the opposite side we have a strong scientifical front, led by the neolutionists. All the clones spent there lives in foster families as they are orphans. Their past and origin is more than dubious and the more information they gather, the deeper Sarah and the others get into trouble.
