    Description


    Gems - genetically modified people - were created to save humanity. But they, too, are human and now they must fight to save themselves.
    For years the human race was nearly decimated from a deadly syndrome, but when a cure was found--in the form of genetically engineered human beings, Gems--but the line between survival and ethics was radically crossed.
    With physical and mental adaptions, Gems worked the jobs that normal human beings could not, branded with a gem sign: glowing, neon-colored hair or other physical difference engineered into their anatomy, forever setting them apart from the Norms they were bred to serve.
    Now the Gems are fighting for their freedom. Fighting the oppression of the companies that created them, and against the "norms" who see them as slaves.
    As violence begins to threaten the severely stratified society and international conference is scheduled to decide this critical civil rights issue once and for all.
