Man:
Stop!

He's running towards--

( tires screech )

Stop!

On the ground!

( man screaming )

What happened?

( heart beating )

Here on the remote island of Kuttyhunk

globally famed as a hotbed

for scientific research...

Proverbial gold has been found

in a new breed of pearl,

genetically engineered

by the innovative scientific community

that lives and runs

this tiny island.

Scientists from around the world

moved here after World War ll

as a meeting ground

for inventive minds.

Mason, famous for

controlling his image,

refused to comment

on this groundbreaking achievement.

Man:
...Ieaving this reporter wondering,

if they can produce this,

what else are they capable of?

( heart monitor beeping )

Today is day one

of the Human Growth Project.

We believe that through

continued development

of parasitic research

we can provide humanity with a tool

that will remove the limitations

placed on us by our DNA.

Some people thought this

to be impossible until now.

This is important.

This is monumental.

And we have distribution

in six out of the eight major

territories--

quite an achievement.

We need to think even bigger.

We need to think global.

We need to think evolution.

Look at where we started

and look how far we have come.

I should acknowledge my niece

Amanda Lane,

without whom this would not

have been possible.

Behind this curtain--

( crash )

( screaming )

Run! Run!

We've managed to control

the outbreak.

There have been fewer

than two dozen deaths.

- ( screaming )

- In the pan is a layer of ocean water.

And since the island is

surrounded by salt water,

I think the mainland

will remain safe for quite some time.

But we are so close.

Amanda has the antidote.

We can reverse-engineer--

I can make this work.

This is sadly

part of the process.

Man:
Oh my God!

Oh my God!

Get out of here!

Let me in! Let me in!

Oh, Jesus.

( screaming )

- Sarah, hey.

- Hey.

- It's nice to put a face with the name.

- Yeah, nice to meet you.

Hi. How's everything

at the camp?

Fine, I guess.

- It's not that bad.

- What's not?

He's landsick.

Things are still moving.

Yeah, I don't feel too well either.

It is a little choppy out there.

You don't have to make

excuses for me.

- I wasn't.

- Yeah, you were.

( quiet rock music playing )

Weird being back, huh?

A little.

I told you I'd take care of it.

No, it's good to get closure.

I'm glad you called. The compound's

kind of fallen apart over the years.

That's why I brought

my cleaning crew.

- Oh my God.

- How do you guys know each other?

Boyfriend, stepbrother, friend.

- Best friend.

- Best friend.

Should we show them

how we make out sometimes?

What? Like you guys don't want

to see us making out.

And you're Mason's niece?

He was my great uncle, yeah.

He and your mom are pretty famous

here on the island.

Jamie:
Actually, my mom died here

when I was a kid.

But Marco got a call that Mason

had passed away and left his property.

So we're just here to clean it

and sell it.

- Is it worth a lot?

- It's worth $2 million, actually.

- No way.

- But the weirdest part is

that last month I was paying their rent

and this month they're millionaires.

- You're gonna let that go?

- I'm not saying you have to pay me--

- It's my fault.

- Justin.

No. I got sick

and they paid for me again.

He has low immunity.

I should be paying you back.

Don't worry about it, bro.

It'll work out.

And we're gonna pay back

your trust fund with interest.

Awesome.

( child whispering )

Do you hear that?

She's fine, baby.

Go to sleep.
