This group of individuals have sacrificed the last two years of their lives to a project so important, it has the potential to change lives across the globe.
Now, they need Conor’s help.
As the true potential of the project is revealed, the impact of their creation is suddenly shaken, concluding in a chilling discovery that will change things forever.
