Clive and Elsa are young and motivated scientists, they work in the field of genetic engineering and their latest project is one of the most ambitious assignments anyone has ever faced. Financed by a private pharmaceutical company their plan is to create a new animal hybrid, an idea the couple feel will be a successful project; when they approach asking to further the project by combining animal and human DNA they are turned down.
Elsa and - a slightly dubious - Clive go behind the backs of their financiers and continue with their plans. Gradually they create a new female hybrid and name it Dren; she is unlike anything seen in science before. Originally they keep the creature in their science lab, but as she grows at an unbelievable speed they must find an alternative hiding place for Dren. As well as growing in size, Dren also appears to be a very fast learner. What started out as a project to advance their understanding of the human race soon looks like is will threaten their lives.
