Repo! The Genetic Opera

Synopsis: In the year 2056 - the not so distant future - an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants, for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about her family's mysterious history. After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo, she is unable to turn back, as all of her questions will be answered at the wildly anticipated spectacular event: The Genetic Opera.

But it was real, Dad

I am the doctor, and I'm your father

I didn't imagine this

Please, Shilo, drop it

Couldn't have fathomed this

Please, Shilo, stop it.

Dad, I could smell the dead.

You could have died! You...

You scare me to death!

A blood disease

That took your dear mother from us

Passed from her and into your veins

I'd be lost if I were to lose you

I will stop at nothing to keep you safe

I'll take my meds, Dad

Don't you worry

Just until I find a cure

Your mother, rest her soul

Would be so proud of you

Though you cannot see her

She is here with you

We will always be there for you

In your time of need

Shilo, you're the world to me

Shilo, take your medicine.



I'm infected

By your genetics

Shilo, I'm the doctor

Shilo, I'm your father.

Oh, Shilo, that was close.

Take your medicine

I'm infected

By your genetics

I'm infected

By your genetics

And I don't think that I can be fixed

No, I don't think that I can be fixed

Tell me why, oh, why

Are my genetics such a bitch

It's this blood condition

Damn this blood condition

Mother, can you hear me?

Thanks for the disease

Now I am sequestered

Part of the collection

That's what is expected

when you are infected

That's what is expected

when you are infected

How much of it's genetics?

How much of it is fate?

How much of it depends

On the choices that we make

He says I have a right to

I also inherit his shame

Is heredity the culprit?

Can I stop it, or am I a slave?

I want to go outside


I want to go


Ladies and gentlemen

Signore, signori

Don't you dare touch your TV

Tonight's genetic opera

is the place to be

That's right, friends!

Where did our daughter go?

It's me she must escape

My burdens I can't erase

The mother I might have saved
