A gel-like substance is suddenly discovered across the country. Ted Stevens, a Director in the Department of Homeland Security, is assigned to investigate. He enlists the help of scientists at a government laboratory to analyze the ‘goo’. They discover the substance was sent to Earth and has unique properties; it can clone animals. Ted soon learns the substance can also clone humans.
Sue is the first new person cloned from the alien substance. She transforms without any knowledge or memory. She may look like an adult, but she has the mind of a child. She can, however, quickly learn about herself and her surroundings.
After receiving additional reports of copies of other citizens, Ted retrieves and contains the new people. He isolates Sue, five other adults, and five children on an abandoned military base in California. He and his staff restrict access to outside information. The less the ‘aliens’ know, the Department believes, the less danger they’ll be.
While confined in their new community, the cloned residents receive a message. Sue decides she must deliver it, and one morning they find she’s gone.
When Ted’s superiors find out, they become irate and order him to recover ‘it’.
During the recovery of Sue, Ted learns of the clones’ message and begins to understand their true intentions. He needs to know more about the clones before he makes a life-changing decision, so he collects samples for DNA fingerprint testing. The fate of the new people will be decided by the results from Ted’s friends at the laboratory.
