All Of Me
Lauren is putting the final touches to her plan to kill herself when her brother announces he’s getting married and he wants her to be his best man. To her horror, she realises she’s actually loved and needed. Not wanting to break his heart, she’s determined to find a work-around.

So when Lauren’s colleague at the zoo shows her a discarded cloning machine he’s secretly put back together, she thinks she’s found a solution. Clone herself a replacement and then end her life without anyone knowing. It seems like the perfect, guilt-free exit strategy.

But in a series of unpredictable twists and turns, Lauren winds up with three clones – at least two clones too many as far as her switcheroo suicide plan goes.

As Lauren keeps tidying up loose ends, her clones create more mess. Forced to take care of this multi-clone problem is like looking in a mirror that won’t shut up. With three different versions of herself asking her why she’s in so much pain, Lauren must confront the parts of herself that have been easier to ignore. To make matters worse, through her clones, Lauren starts to see how the people in her life love her – an unwelcome complication for someone who wants to end it all.

All of Me is a darkly comedic exploration of the most complex relationship we have in life: our relationship with ourselves. It’s not just another clone show. The series focuses on a truthful look at Lauren’s mental health issues through confrontations with multiple versions of herself.
