Professor Ian Hood (Patrick Stewart) and his bodyguard Rachel Young (Ashley Jensen) have been tasked with investigating cases of science abuse throughout the UK. When a police chase leads to a field where almost 30 fetuses are buried, Hood suspects that ""Gepetto"" - a rogue clone maker - is at work in the country. They soon discover that not only must they try to find and stop Gepetto, but they must also locate a young pregnant girl who is carrying one of the cloned fetuses, and whose life is in danger from a complication with the pregnancy. They are not the only ones searching for the girl, though. One of Gepetto's men, a millionaire, and the girl's abusive ex-boyfriend all have their own reasons for wanting to find her.
