Deliver Me

Jesse, one of the most famous billionaires on Earth is the first human to successfully clone and marry himself. After being married for a year, Jora, Jesse’s clone, is reaching the crux of an identity crisis. On the day of their anniversary, Jesse invites “their” best friend Roberto to give him a gift. Roberto is in love with Jesse, and suffering from unrequited love. Jesse’s solution is to gift Roberto with a hyper-realistic sex doll of himself, as a token of friendship. The doll is the last straw for Jora, who finally decides to revolt against Jesse’s tyranny by devising a plan to finally escape from the prison they call home.
