Two genetic engineers seeking to pioneer a procedure creating new "hybrid" animals for their personal and professional gain experiment with human DNA.

Clive Nicoli and Elsa Kast, two prodigious scientists working for Newstead Pharmaceuticals, look to benefit humanity and become celebrities through the creation of "hybrid" animals from spliced DNA to be used for revolutionary medical testing. Fear of an adverse reaction from the world's governments and general public prompts Newstead management to call off their project; driven to realize their dream, however, Clive and Elsa take their mission one step further, splicing together human DNA to create a clandestine mutant child named Dren. Problems with Dren's behavior mount as she matures into adulthood, metastasizing into a potential catastrophe as her pace of evolution speeds up and she approaches sexual maturity.
