Storyline

In the near future, instead of being sent to prison criminals are aged for the number of years the system feels is adequate to the crime they committed. Vincent Dawson is a 15 year old, whose late father was a musician who didn't exactly make it and died tragically. Vinnie hopes to be a musician too but his step-father is not very supportive, and when they have a violent argument, his step-father is killed and he is the prime suspect and evidence is found against him. He is sentenced to be aged 30 years. Now, as a 15 year old trapped in a 45 year old body, he sets to prove his innocence and hopefully the procedure could be reversed. Written by Anonymous

Good idea excuted in the most expected path
1 September 2019 | by SamALManSee all my reviews

The writing where it got to introduce the process of how the main character got where he is now as an adult (what was and how it became) is good.. not too long and not too short and laid all the necessary information.. after that what got happened in the movie is enjoyable and very predictable. I watched the movie in 2019 and it was interesting to see how they imagined the future.

The idea introduced is worth thinking about.. what if the world replaces jail time by just aging up the person.. how that would be successful or failure.. by the way the answer won't be found in the movie!

I recommend watching this movie at least once for what it hold of an idea only.
