The ancient fear of creating a monstrous interspecies chimera still hovers over contemporary Western society
Four brilliant young medical scientists, working at the cutting edge of stem cell research, are challenged by a rival group to build a living child out of regenerated human and animal body parts, stolen from mortuaries and butchers. Working secretly, without ethical approval, they cross a boundary which was not meant to be crossed. A tragedy for our times, the young scientists, initially elated, are soon horrified by what they have done, and the burden they have taken upon themselves. Wishing to snuff out the life they have created, their intimacy starts to fracture and crumble, one of their group, a girl, escapes with the child and disappears…
