Age Rating:

A scientist finds proof of existence of the human soul, but also an unequal share of it in each person.

A scientist searches for proof of the human soul, and at last she detects it when a person dies. With fame and glory around the corner, she now wants to find it within a living person. As she does, she also concludes that there is not an equal amount of it in all humans. One who registers zero is her lab assistant, who, as a result, jumps off a bridge, leaving small children behind. The scientist's lover now shows his true colors and uses her research against humanity, claiming some to be better fitted to rule than others. Realizing she has opened the box of Pandora and is unable to shut it again, she fights the one who took control over her research and wins a temporary victory.

All Accolades & Coverage: 

"The story kernel was really great. The idea of proving the existence of a soul is not a new idea, but this was a take on it that I’ve never seen before." ACADEMY NICHOLL FELLOWSHIPS IN SCREENWRITING, READER COMMENT
