In a future world where humans are in danger of extinction due to rampant climate change and environmental deterioration, the FBI is taking measures to stop medical terrorists who are seeking to genetically alter the human race. Innocent young girls' bodies are being cloned and manipulated in a secretive underground city to determine the ultimate genome to move forward as the successor species.
The clones have been created from DNA extracted from a stolen fetus, Sally, the daughter of renowned geneticist, Alex Bennett, and popular news anchor, Lucinda Monticello-Bridgewater. Alex and Lucinda are fully aware that they have one cloned daughter, Valerie, whose intelligence was enhanced at the expense of being incapable of fitting into society, but they could never have imagined that they have more living offspring, many more.
Forced into an illicit scheme, Alex, Lucinda, Valerie, and Sally must search for the truth. What will happen to the clone population? Will they be accepted by society to represent the ideal future human race that can withstand climate change? Or like Valerie, will they struggle with their unique place in life?
