Summary:
Set in the future when sequencing technology is readily available to the public, this short film follows the journey of a young man who decides to sequence his genome after his sister dies of a genetic disorder. We see the complexity of making this decision as he must choose exactly what he wants to find out about his genome, and in how much detail. However, once a genetic profile is compiled, life can become more difficult with this extra burden of knowledge. In this film, our protagonist learns to overcome this hurdle by creating a new friendship and changing his lifestyle to help maintain a longer and happier life.
