Can we create life after death? Should we allow it? IN HIS IMAGE shows how the desire to have offspring has taken on an extra dimension. The film tells the stories of three mothers mourning their sons. Using semen collected shortly after their sons’ death, they hope to have him live on in a posthumous grandchild. The film raises ethical and philosophical questions about postmortem preproduction and sheds new light on dilemmas like single motherhood, the meaning of family and the complexity of losing a child.
