THE NEXT STAGE IN HUMAN EVOLUTION IS ALMOST HERE… BUT WILL HOMO SAPIENS SURVIVE?
It’s 2065. Environmental and social chaos are poised to disrupt all life on earth. Some regions are still controlled by their governments, others – beyond the walls surrounding the major cities – are controlled by gangs and rebel armies.
Dr Michael Khan, a brilliant geneticist struggling to save his wife from a deadly virus, is recruited by a secret organization called Gendigm – led by an eccentric billionaire – to engineer the next stage in human evolution. The members of Gendigm believe human greed and selfishness are at the root of our self-destruction, and they are intent on creating an improved version of humanity, Homo novus – more cooperative, more generous, more resistant to disease, and more able to survive the future.
When the military learns of Michael’s research, he is hired to create genetic resistance to a weaponized form of Ebola being deployed against his country. However, the military has its own agenda, and Michael soon learns that nobody, not even his own government, can be trusted.
Just as his wife along with millions of his fellow citizens are dying, Michael is forced to make a decision that will affect the entire future of humanity: should he try to protect his perfectly cooperative, genetically modified children, or are Homo sapiens worth saving after all?
