Mia Ackerland (Luna Wedler), a student with outstanding results in the study of genetics, enters the University of Freiburg, one of the best institutions of higher education in Germany. Here she met the same like-minded geneticists – it’s not a problem for them to create a mouse that glows in the dark or a vegetable that tastes like meat. Tanya Lorenz, a distinguished professor of genetics, is a role model for talented students. Although at first glance, it seems that Mia is happy to be in the circle of friends, to go to parties and conduct experiments on animals and plants. However, the girl set herself one another goal. She tries to find out more about the person who – in her opinion – is responsible for the death of her brother.
