Stylish, sci-fi noir explores the not-too-distant future where, in order to travel from city to cloistered city, people need "papelles," a combination visa, passport and genetic ID code. Evidently, excessive cloning has led to DNA protected zones that require strict policing. Robbins is William Geld, an investigator who has been infected with an empathy virus that enables him to read minds. Geld is tracking forged papelles, which leads him to Shanghai and the suspect Maria (Morton), a Shanghai factory worker. Geld, however falls for Maria and they enter into an intense love affair. Some provocative ideas and good premise are compromised by lack of chemistry between Robbins and Morton.
