Futuristic Drama starring Jaqueline Kim, Samantha Kim, James Urbaniak and Ken Jeong. In a metropolis in the near future, Gwen Koh, a beautiful woman full of poise and grace, works as the spokesperson for the Center for Advanced Health and Living, a company that offers a radical new technology allowing people to overcome their natural disadvantages and begin life anew. But when a shift in company priorities threatens her job and her family, will Gwen undergo the procedure herself?
Writer/Director Jennifer Phang’s fresh, soulful, and sophisticated science fiction film elegantly engages the future of our society, its economies, values, and gender disparity. A haunting and inventive tale that glistens at its center with a penetrating performance by Jacqueline Kim, Advantageous spins an intriguing and entirely tangible emotional fabric of a future society that powerfully resonates with how we live in our world today.
