GENRE: Drama

You discover you are genetically modified. Your shelf life is 27 years. Tomorrow is your 28th birthday.


ANGIE HOWELL (27) is jogging, trying to work out very disturbing questions. She remembers growing up: solving complex equations in university; head of class, receiving honors; riding horse; bowing as star in plays; performing recitals; dates with successful young men; magazine articles about her career in researching brain trauma. She recalls that morning when her older brother Danny, mentally disabled, runs in hysterically from a scratch. She heals his scratch by tracing her finger across the cut. Danny doesn’t think everyone can do that. Back on her jog, she remembers entering the BioGen building where her father and fiancé WILL BRADLEY work as well. Will and Angie inadvertently discover that she is monitored by one of the devices in his lab. They piece together the possibility that the monitor inside her was placed there when she was ten years old. She hacks into the computer files to unravel the truth: She is an experiment about to expire. The end of her jog, she sits by a tree and sends a video message to her father. The message reveals the cover-up and how the wealthy use the company to further their experiments in life-lengthening and augmentation experiments. All test subjects have a shelf-life to protect the product. Angie shows her father how to find the files she hacked. He now has the ammunition to inform the proper agencies regarding human genetic modification. He realizes through the website that he is being watched, sees us and destroys the camera.
