Iryna Myenova signs a contract with the Transhuman Company to freeze her 98-year old mother. This should happen when her heart stops beating but her brain is still alive for a few minutes. She does so in the hope that technology in the future will bring her back to life and even make her young again. Iryna also signs a contract to freeze herself after her death. Her aim is to start a new, better relationship with her mother, who was extremely strict and selfish. She didn’t allow Iryna to have any friends…
