A scientist is lured into playing God and must decide if he's doing the right thing in this sci-fi drama. Jack Ward (Jason Brooks) is a research scientist whose area of expertise is DNA. When the government finds a mysterious humanoid frozen in the arctic wastes, Jack is recruited to study the creature and find out more about him. Jack discovers that the iceman's DNA is far advanced from that of any normal man, and he's soon prodded into performing experiments involving splicing this advanced DNA into the genetic strands of normal people. Before long, Jack has become involved in a project to boost human intelligence, something that violates his personal ethics -- though he realizes it might also help his brother Andy (Robert Floyd), who is mentally challenged. The Darwin Conspiricy also stars Kevin Tighe, Stacy Haiduk, and Steve Garvey.
