It's the year 2090, and although technological progress has steadily increased, societal progress still has a long way to catch up. While people with disabilities still exist, in some cultures they are stigmatized. Many parents wonder, "Why allow a disabled child to be born when their genetic code can be changed before birth?"

Dr. Mangané, a Japanese geneticist with dwarfism, tries to prove to his parents, especially his never-pleased father, that he can accomplish something amazing despite being told his whole life he will never amount to anything. He challenges their grim prognosis by becoming a great scientist and conducting a breakthrough experiment that may forever change what it means to be human.

Dr. Mangané's troubles continue, however, when his assistant, Eugene, decides to do his own little experiment against the scientist's strict code of ethics. Such a shock marks the beginning of a series of terrible and tragic events that unravel the fragile sanity he tries so desperately to preserve.
