Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy are best friends who grow up together in the isolated boarding school called Hailsham, with a chilling secret. As children, Kathy is secretly in love with Tommy. Then she sees her best friend Ruth holding Tommy's hand, and is devastated. As adolescents, Tommy and Kathy form a deep connection, only to have Ruth shove them apart with her own romantic demands. As they prepare to leave the school, they learn of their true purpose: each is a clone that will later have their organs harvested for medical purposes. Kathy takes on the role of "Carer," dedicating herself to looking after those being slowly dissected, and eventually Tommy and Ruth prepare to make their first "donations." As the years pass, the group grows apart, before finally reuniting just as both Tommy and Ruth are about to "complete."
