"Beholder" film

This an interesting and thought-provoking short film about the future in a tech society.

At a medical center where patients can genetically choose the characteristics of their unborn babies, Sasha, the wife of a politician is informed that her baby carries the genetic marker for homosexuality. By the laws of Red Estates Sasha must fix the problem by getting inoculated and get rid of the bad genes. She has to decide whether to conform to the rules of society or risk everything and move to more free place

The worksheet contains vocabulary based activities.
