Gattaca - Movie Synopsis & Plot
In the future, a person's destiny does not depend on what they worked for; their selection in the human race is chosen before birth. Every detail, from appearances to behavior can be genetically altered to the parent's wishes; from the moment their cells are changed, that being's life is set.
But what if one child was conceived not for perfection but for love. He was merely a normal child, conceived between two young lovers, his life based on chance. However, even his life would be told from the start...

A way to change your DNA and your looks? A way to become someone else...?
