In the year 2022 two Australian Scientists - husband and wife Marietta and Damian Costa - embark on a mission to save the world from the ravages of drought, climate change and hunger. A decimated bee population leads to worldwide food shortages and these brilliant individuals first design a home food production unit using an algae based protein - winning a Nobel Prize in the process. After that short term solution, they then embark on a second more permanent solution usinggenetic modification of the human genome. What happens next is the stuff of nightmares, and sends the human race a clear message - that maybe we’re not as smart as we think we are. After a disaster in their lab which results in the loss of a close friend, Damian retreats to his Blue Mountains home - Whispering Pines - where he lives as a recluse for several years. That is, until a persistent reporter - Serena Hamilton-Smith is finally granted an interview that she will remember for the rest of her life.
