The human genome is said to contain as much information as 3,200 volumes of 1,000 page books, with 1,000 characters on each page. However, it has been proven through various research that in the course of our lifetimes, only a percentage of this information is used. The global biotechnology authority, Dr. Kazuo Murakami, has this to say: 'If we could switch on these dormant genes, it would open up infinite possibilities for humanity.' So how can we flip this on switch? This is a documentary following Dr. Murakami's research into what can happen when people are in distress.
