A thought provoking psychological thriller that follows the story of a scientist on a journey of startling and frightening discovery, set within the mysterious world of genetic engineering.
Following divorce from his wife and the loss of his son to a rare genetic mutation, Canadian geneticist Geoff Burton relocates to the harsh, wintry scenery of Dresden, Germany to work on a groundbreaking new project that might just be his key to redemption. When teamed up with his former intern and colleague Rebekka, he starts working on a human regenerative gene with direct ties to his personal tragedy, yet matters prove increasingly difficult: jealous co-workers’ feelings are ruffled, old flames are rekindled and personal demons become consistently harder to suppress. As Burton gets closer to a medical breakthrough, things start to quickly spiral out of control. Collapsing his career and personal life into a dark and increasingly dangerous tunnel-vision of competitive genetics, delusions of all kinds, and the terrifying potential of massive discoveries gone awry, the question remains: how far will Burton be willing to go?
Dark and unsettling, this is a serious and powerful film. And your eyes are not deceiving you, the head of the institute is played by Rik Mayall!
