A group of researchers conducting illegal stem cell research discover a cell anomaly that has the potential to regenerate dead tissue. Unable to conduct legal human trials, the researchers turn to corpses to test their serum. A beautiful young stem-cell researcher (Tiffany Shepis) joins a secret research group attempting to develop a stem-cell based universal healing serum. Despite opposition from the project leaders, she quickly develops a serum that can bring the dead back to life - but with horrific results. Distraught, Elizabeth tries to leave the project, but the project's financier (Ed Lauter) orders Marcus to hold the research team captive until their research is complete. When one of the project's security guards is murdered and then re-animated, the team must contend with a man who at first is like a child, but quickly becomes something much, much more...
