A bio lab in present-day London.
In a secret experiment, scientists are about to bring back to life a Neanderthal youth they have found perfectly preserved in the stomach of a frozen, prehistoric salamander.
When language evolution expert, Samuel Pacheco joins the project, he is told absolute secrecy must be maintained to protect the cave boy from a media circus. But as Pacheco and his colleagues labor to make sense of the Neanderthal’s baffling behavior, a more sinister reason for the secrecy emerges. Within a week, Pacheco will blow the lid off the project and stun the world with the revelations in his journal.
