movie-february-2009-repo.jpgSynopsis

At some time in the future, organ failures are the main disease that plagues mankind. But never fear, because GENECO will supply fresh healthy organs, of course at a steep price.

Unfortunately, it's a price that not everyone can keep up on their payments.

So, the Repo Man hunts them down and repossesses the transplanted organs.

And it's all done in operatic form with lots of singing, slippin' and slidin' in the blood.
