SUMMARY

In 2012, geneticist Joseph Fowler illegally used the gene editing technique CRISPR/Cas9 to save the life of his unborn daughter, Amelia. For this, he was sentenced to life in prison whilst Amelia was raised by her aunt. Now she is on trial: a zealous environmentalist, arguing that her continued survival threatens humanity’s future, whilst her family fights for her right to life. You have been summoned for jury duty to decide. How will you vote? Innocent or guilty? Chaos or safety? Kindness or cleverness? This show has two possible endings, decided by audience vote.
