12 STRANDS — Resident aliens spread a virus to devastate mankind’s population and takeover the world, but the virus unexpectedly activates the junk DNA of select women who develop supernatural powers, becoming earth’s last chance.
Feisty, young Eve wakes up to a world devastated by a killer virus spread by cunning aliens who have been living underground for millenniums, manipulating the governments and elite from behind the scenes, waiting for the right time to strike and seize control of earth. Eve and her handsome neighbor struggle to survive without electricity, water or communication until U.S. soldiers detect her deviant DNA and hand her over to hybrid soldiers, who deliver her to the aliens. In the midst of a horrific experiment, Eve unexpectedly disappears and reappears back home — her first real clue that the virus is causing her body to mutate. Meanwhile, the human survivors are pawns in a ruthless plot to enslave them, perpetuated by subliminal thought control. Forced to hide, Eve and other DNA-activated women reside deep in the beautiful Amazon Rainforest where they hone their benevolent, death-defying powers, rescue their loved ones and spy on the aliens. The women soon realize they are the only thing standing between the end of humanity and reclamation of earth.
Set in present day, this thought-provoking story is a mix between The Invasion (Kidman) and The Matrix with the tone of Independence Day.
