Blueprint is a 2003 German science fiction film directed by Rolf Schübel. It is based on the novel written by Charlotte Kerner. The film raises the ethical issue of human cloning.



Iris Sellin (Potente) is a world famous pianist and composer who finds out that she is suffering from multiple sclerosis, a degenerative nerve disorder that will gradually stop her being able to perform. She asks a friend, Dr. Martin Fisher (Thomsen), a revolutionary reproductive researcher to assist her in creating her clone so that she can pass her music onto her daughter. Even though cloning of humans is illegal, Dr. Fisher agrees so that he will forever be known as the first. The procedure is a success and Iris gives birth to Siri (Potente). Siri resembles closely to her mother in both facial features and musical talent.

When Siri finds out at the age of thirteen that she is her mother’s clone, her whole world falls apart. The once very close and sweet relationship between mother and daughter turns into an emotional struggle. They fight for the same man, compete with their musical careers, and nearly pay with their lives.

In order to escape the disappointment of her own existence, Siri later moves to Canada where she starts a lonely life away from civilization in the woods photographing deer. But fate grants her the possibility of release from her self-imposed isolation when she meets Greg (Guðnason), a charming architect who brings love back into Siri’s life and even paves the way toward reconciliation between mother and daughter.



The opening and the closing credits of the movie feature the song "The Truth Lies" by Dana Glover.
