在未來世界,單親虎媽許關在一家生物科技研發公司擔任發言人,他們協助顧客克服與生俱來的缺點、展開全新人生。當公司以許關的年齡做為裁員藉口,使她面臨是否該親自嘗試公司「療程」,好在動盪不安的環境下撫養女兒茱兒,並且送她到私立學校,保障競爭優勢。對於女兒的愛與期待,驅使她做出災難性的錯誤決定……明日幻相是什麼模樣?本片為《再見朝陽》導演睽違以久的長片作品,藉由當代經濟困境、價值觀與性別不平等現況,編織出未來世界的可能樣貌,呈現出另類又溫柔的科幻作品。

 

Set in the near future, Advantageous focuses on Gwen, a single mother who works as a spokesperson for the Center for Advanced Health and Living and finds herself in danger of losing her job. That would make it impossible for her to send her daughter Jules to private school, a termed “advantage” in this future society’s brutal economic disparities. The Center’s newest and untested health procedure offers Gwen a dangerous, life-altering chance to continue her career. To weigh her options, Gwen attempts to reconnect with an estranged relative and his new wife, but as seems standard for all in this dystopian landscape, Gwen remains alienated and alone.
