Synopsis/Details: 

“The only logical conclusion is now apparent. My programming has become… too human.”

RHET, a singular, highly intelligent robot, meticulously executes his one program in life in an underground lab: tending to a single human baby.

A bio-tech that would cure disease is weaponized, malfunctions, and releases billions of genetically engineered microbes into the atmosphere on the Earth's surface.

Within days, most of humanity is eaten alive.

Eighteen years later, Hunter celebrates his birthday with the only parent he has… RHET. When a young girl running for her life suddenly appears from the planet's surface, teenage hormones and curiosity kick in. The existence of others on the surface now apparent, Hunt becomes the target of the same Scientist who created RHET who's convinced only Hunt’s pure DNA can save the survivors… at any cost.

With the boy’s life in danger, RHET is suddenly conflicted and is forced to make a most human decision: Kill his creator or the creation.
