Star academics, Doctors Julian Reed and Barbara Sullivan, fall in love and conceive the idea of cloning a Neanderthal from ancient DNA. Against the express directive of University administrators, they follow through on this audacious idea. The result is William: the first Neanderthal to walk the earth for some 35,000 years. William tries his best to fit into the world around him. But his distinctive physical features and his unique way of thinking - his 'otherness' - set him apart and provoke fear. William's story is powerful and unique, and his struggle to find love and assert his own identity in a hostile world is universal - and timeless. Written by Cinema Management Group

How Do You Get in Touch With Your Past...If It Was 35,000 Years Ago?

User Reviews

Bah could have been better.
18 October 2019 | by veryprivateswagSee all my reviews

Interesting idea but it wasn't really well done, far too much of everyday life was simply left out like social media etc etc.

It has a really meh ending to boot. I have to wonder if the people writing these stupid endings think it's fun, or unique from the myriad other movies with suck endings? Frankly it adds nothing but a negative star.

I think maybe the people that made this saw "Iceman 1984" one time too many.
