In Frozen Angels, Los Angeles is not only a location but also a metaphor for the fast approaching future of designer baby making. Built on ideals and illusions, and home to Hollywood and Disneyland, the city is not surprisingly a destination for those who want the perfect child - through science. The hyper-stylized photography of L.A.s freeways, epic proportion film sets and hard bodies at muscle beaches are a haunting reminder that genetic manipulation as the norm is just around the corner. Following a number of characters, including an infertile couple and the surrogate mother they hire for U.S. $80,000, the owners of a sperm bank that specializes in Nobel Prize Laureates, gene researchers and many more with a stake in this boutique baby biz, the film raises questions about the long-range consequences.
