Dr. Harry Wolper (Peter O'Toole) is an eccentric scientist who can't forget the wife he lost to childbirth 30 years ago. To assuage his heartache, he decides to clone his dead wife. Little does Wolper realize, however, that true love may be staring him in the face -- in the form of his lab assistant, Meli (Mariel Hemingway). When Meli forces the scientist to choose between her and his "experiment," Wolper must make a decision. Also starring Virginia Madsen.
