Sitting alone on the deck of an isolated beach house, Rebecca recalls how life led to what she considers the "gift" in her enlarged belly... As a little girl visiting her grandfather, shy Rebecca befriends ginger-haired Tommy. They quickly develop a profound friendship during their summer adventures in the remote coastal area. But their fairy-tale romance comes to an end when Rebecca must follow her mother to faraway Tokyo. Twelve years later, young woman Rebecca returns to settle in her late grandfather's house. She seeks out childhood friend Tommy, now a university student living on his own. Their reunion is marked by a strong mutual attraction. As they get to know one another better, Rebecca discovers that Tommy has harbored deep feelings for her too since their time together as children. But their passionate relationship is shortlived when Tommy is killed in a freak car accident. Devastated, Rebecca feels that life cannot go on without Tommy. She turns to the controversial "Department of Genetic Replication" for an option. Although wary of the potential repercussions, Tommy's parents reluctantly agree to supply Rebecca with the necessary DNA sample for her to bear a new Tommy in her womb. Life with little Tommy is full of joy and wonder. Rebecca completely devotes herself to "just us two", living isolated in the middle-of-nowhere shore community. But Rebecca cannot fully escape the complexities of her decision as the years pass. How long will she be able to hide the truth from new Tommy and nosy townsfolk? Can she protect him from prejudice against "copies"? When he grows to manhood in the exact image of her beloved, how will Rebecca explain away the confusing urges that new Tommy doesn't understand? Chilling answers unravel as Rebecca prepares for the bittersweet fruition of a lifelong dream.
