    • Synopsis
    • Luc Lacoste, researcher/genius in genetic bio-mechanics, discovers the genome for the "grandfather" of all wheat seeds - THE KING SEED, which could potentially feed the third world without international politics or profit. He gains many envied global enemies along the way - desiring the secret encryption to his code.

      Lacoste spends ten years in prison for second degree murder for defending a hostile theft at his research lab which resulted in the death of his research supervisor.

      Once free, Lacoste kidnaps his own "illegitimate son" who was raised by the billionaire who sponsored and financed the theft. Lacoste had encrypted the code with the DNA eye signature of his infant son for protection. Now his 12 year old son, Damien is exposed to the breaking of the code by using his eye scan programmed when he was an infant. Lacoste kidnaps Damien to protect him and to flee the country with his work secure. There is a huge 48 hour chase - a hire assassin - and road-warrior protection.

      In the course of the film, while trying to flee the country with the genome code - Luc Lacoste redefines his his own purpose in life through the slowly renewed love of the son he never knew.
