In another time, in another place, scientist Sterling Pierce dedicated his career to searching for the answer to eternal life, over time creating a substance known as “Divinity.” Failson Jaxxon Pierce now controls and manufactures his father’s once-benevolent serum… Society on this barren planet has been entirely perverted by the supremacy of the drug, whose true origins are shrouded in mystery. When two mysterious brothers arrive with a plan to abduct the mogul, and with the help of a seductress named Nikita, they will be set on a path hurtling toward true immortality.
Filmmaker Eddie Alcazar astonishes with this determined vision that presents a retro-futurist look of a dazzling and monstrous fate. Alcazar leads a skilled team of ingenious associates to manufacture this universe, and together they conjure a gloriously lit black-and-white wonder with clandestine curiosities in the dark.
– Kevin Monahan
