Ray Willis has a lot of hurdles in his life. His wife Shannon has Multiple Sclerosis and he works terrible hours at a funeral parlor. He likes his job, but he only stays because it (barely) covers the bills and his wife’s medication. Both he and his wife know that he’s too smart for the job he has, and could be doing so much more, but Ray feels trapped. One day, his estranged brother Denny comes around with a duffle bag full of cash and an offer Ray can’t resist. Denny works with a government sponsored program that is looking for a way to cure cancer, MS, and every other disease known to man. They just need to extract some DNA from the Supers – men and women with extraordinary powers. Ray goes along for the paycheck, and to do some good for the world, but Denny has … ulterior motives.
