DVD - 2013

Desperate to escape his dreary, dead-end life, an aging banker succumbs to a mysterious organization's offer of a new identity and a fresh start. Surgically transformed into a handsome, young man, he begins a jet-set existence among a shadowy community of similar "reborns." But his heady exhilaration spirals into a heart-stopping terror as he discovers that his newly purchased life carries a terrifying price.
