MISBEGOTTEN: Blade Runner meets The Passion of Christ

A story about a holy clone, a nun in love, and a warrior priest caught in between.

In a dystopian future, a warrior priest is sent on a do-or-die mission to save a Jesus-clone from being sacrificed during a mock Passion play. Saving the holy clone from the cross forces the monk to confront the truth of his own (very immaculate) birth.

What if Marilyn Monroe fell in love with Jesus of Nazareth and tried to save him from the cross? There is a world in which this scenario is not that far-fetched—the world of Misbegotten!

Half post-apocalyptic adventure and half absurdist satire, Misbegotten is an exercise in genre-bending wrapped around a Holy Grail journey through an immersive apocalyptic landscape of biopunk iconography.

Unlike other similar stories that played on the ethical implications of cloning for medical purposes, MISBEGOTTEN explores a future where humans are cloned for the sheer enjoyment of personal entertainment. Its plot emerges from the religious establishment’s reaction to what is perceived to be a blasphemous threat. The many twists and turns make for a sci-fi thriller with larger implications, the thrill of adventure complementing a theme that will resonate with larger audiences.
