In a futuristic future, humanity is on the verge of extinction. In the city of Olympia , Dr. Josephine Hayden developed the so-called transcoder , with which human DNA can be reconfigured. If an experiment fails, Josephine Hayden's DNA mutates. An explosion destroys Haydon Technology and the quality of life in Olympia . The scientist Christian Rolsen survived the disaster as one of the few.
In order to gain access to a better life in the city of Demeter , the candidates' DNA is tested and the “best” are selected. With the help of the transcoder , criminals try to steal “selected” DNA in order to flee to Demeter . The assassin Michelle hunts these so-called DNA hackers on behalf of the government .
To pay off his gambling debts, her younger brother Jackie breaks into Christian and steals the last transcoder . Josephine Hayden's brothers Solemn and Abraham are looking for the transcoder to heal their sister with. Abraham offers Michelle exit papers if she kills Christian.

When the transcoder also mutates Christian's DNA, Michelle kills him and leaves for Demeter at the end of the film .
