Tilda Swinton plays four roles in Lynn Hershman Leeson’s feminist sci-fi brain-bender about Rosetta Stone and her three Self-Replicating Automatons, (SRAs), which she cloned from her own DNA. Though they look human, the SRA cyborgs were bred as intelligent machines and are immortal. In order to survive, they need the sustenance of male Y chromosomes, found only in sperm. Their task is to harvest sperm the old-fashioned way, which leads to a quest for love.
