U.S. President Jack Brinton has the perfect genetic weapon to defeat terrorism and secure his place in history until conspiracy turns the weapon against him.
It is early 21st century. U.S. President Jack Brinton is determined that in his second term he will make his mark on history by decisive action against terrorism and rogue nations which remain a threat to America. A research project on genetic modification of crops produces a species which Brinton recognises as potentially the perfect weapon to achieve his ambition.
Before the research findings can be verified the small research team perish in an accident while returning from a secret meeting with Brinton. But more mysteriously the team leader Norma Tishkovskaya (Norma Gene) is not among the dead and has disappeared along with the research notes. The accident is witnessed by ex policeman turned private detective Lee Chandler who suspecting it is no accident makes discreet enquiries with an old colleague. These enquiries come to the attention of Brinton. Forced to keep the the loss of the "weapon" secret for fear of causing panic, Brinton solicits Chandler to find Norma Gene and recover the research notes.
It soon becomes clear that a conspiracy is at work but the aim of the conspiracy and those responsible are quite unexpected.
