It’s the plague of the 21st century. 


Over the course of thirty-something years the increase in intestinal cancers, birth defects among newborns and serious cellular deterioration has decreased the global human population by nearly 25 percent.


The multinational giant SynMonto Genetics is on the verge of launching their new product line; Generation Six with Apple 1.1. The spokesperson for the corporation, LINDSEY TELLER (ILLEANA DOUGLAS) is tasked with making sure that the launch of Generation Six goes through without difficulties. The sudden discovery of the girl MAYA (SAYLOR CURDA) suddenly threatens to put a stop to that. The girl was raised in an illegal, natural Sanctuary, and is rumored to have been born without the damaged gene that is causing human life expectancy to drastically shorten.


Needless to say, her mere existence is a liability to the Bio-tech corporation, something which forces the head of Special Projects, MICHAEL FISHER (DON MCMANUS) to make some drastic plans.


When Maya and her older sister, SIMONE (AUTUMN WITHERS) go missing, NOAH (KEVIN MCNAMARA) – the unspoken leader of the movement “Green Earth Anarchy” kidnaps Teller, using her to get access to SynMonto. Well inside, they find Simone who has been kept a prisoner inside the research facility, but Maya is nowhere to be found. One of the members of the group, JADE (BRYAN SATO), discovers a number of classified documents as he hacks into SynMonto’s mainframe, proving that the corporation is fully aware of the hazardous impact their untested products has on the public. Before the night is over, Noah and his group will find out exactly how far the Bio-tech giant is willing to go to keep the public from finding out the truth about their role in the global disaster.
