Doing great.

Keep breathing.

We have the head,

keep breathing.

I've got it now.

Here we go...

Imagine you were born

totally aware and conscious

of everything around you.

Conscious you were coming

out of someone else's body.

Joined to it by a bloody cord

that you are completely

covered in blood.

We have a healthy baby boy!

Conscious of the dry air

entering your lungs

for the first time.

The sharp sounds in your ears.

- Scissors?

- The blinding light in your eyes.

- Ten fingers, ten toes!

- Conscious that your bones

are unbearably soft

and your life is so fragile

it could disappear at any moment.

That's what being

resurrected is like.

- Congratulations!

- Thank you!

I can imagine nurse

Elizabeth Mansfra

I can feel her excitement

the day she met Dr. Victor West.

Regenerative medicine's

new genius

Look at the light, please.

Good morning, Miss Mansfra.

Welcome to Prodigy.

Where humanity's greatest

dream is coming true.

Are you aware that our team of

top international scientists

has developed the world's most

advanced regeneration program?

We're the only ones capable of

regenerating up to 65 percent

of the human organism.

Prodigy Health Corporation...

The only company in the world

that can bring you immortality.

Because immortality is

only a question of time.

Elizabeth, I remind you that

you are still bound by the

confidentiality agreement?

Nothing mentioned here today

can leave the premises.



This is Elizabeth Mansfra,

the nurse.

Elizabeth, Dr. West.

Nice to meet you.

It's an honor, Dr. West.

I've read all your books.

Try augmenting the levels

of catecholamines gradually.


Excuse me.

Oh, Elizabeth.


Thank you.

Ready for a visit?

I'll call Dr. Howard.

Elizabeth and Victor.

My new parents.

This is where we work.

The entire wing of the building

is dedicated to the project.

200,000 square feet of

facilities for Lazarus alone.

And we barely even fit.

How long have you

been working on it?

Four years. We're finally

prepared to face reanimation.

That's a scanned map of Lazarus

with an accuracy

almost to the cell.

We use it to study the

primary difficulties

and to make decisions

before the big surgery.

Like what proportion of

the body can be reanimated

and what proportion

must be substituted

by bionic parts and organs

developed in our laboratory.

That is the operating room where

multiple surgeons will work

under Victor's direction

and assisted by 120 technicians

on the outside.

This is a model of

a surgical robot

we've designed for the operation.

When's the surgery?

July 25th.

That gives you four weeks

to familiarize yourself

with the clinical details

and to prepare your strategy.

After surgery, Lazarus remains

in an induced coma

for nearly two months.

Giving him time to assimilate

his new organs and implants.

It also allows us to address

possible reanimation defects.

Now, one of your functions

while he's in a coma

is to help him make that

transition into his new life.

And after that, you'll be

much more than just his nurse.

You'll be his


Of course.

Those are Lazarus' muscles

I knew it could be done,

but that doesn't

make it less impressive.

Any questions, Elizabeth?

What's Lazarus' name?


Why does time pass so slowly

when we're children?

What are you doing, Marc?

Why does the future seem

like a huge endless eternity?

He is so tired.

Okay, c'mon, you can do it.

That's a good boy.

Let me see you.

Whey do we never feel

anything that intensely again?

Only the pain.
