Earth ran out of oil. Nuclear power is the main alternative. Simultaneous human and natural disasters created massive radiation leaks rendering human life infertile. Thus, cloning is legalized. Clones and off-world species provide the workforce. Each “original” or "host" is allotted two clones. Watch what happens in the first trial of a host accused of killing his clone. A short story mystery!
