From filmmaker Daryl Wein (Breaking Upwards), this dramatic thriller in the vein of “Erin Brockovich” explores the complex world of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). This is the first narrative feature film (not a documentary) to delve into these hot-button issues in an entertaining fictional landscape. The story is anchored by a working-class, single mother (Zoe Lister-Jones) on a hunt to uncover the cause of her son’s mysterious illness. Interwoven are the stories of an Organic farmer, the CEO of a biotechnology corporation (Victor Garber), and two Scientists (Anthony Edwards & Kunal Nayyar) on the verge of a major discovery.
Run Time: 95 minutes
