Synopsis: Amidst the excitement of the advances in stem cell research, little thought has been given to the human spare parts created at the world-famous ‘Centre’. But what happens when those ‘spare parts’ are revealed to be a lot more than that – to be living, breathing replicas of human beings? An orphaned teenage girl, Stella, abandoned by the family she has left, flees a life to be spent in the care of social services and takes to the wilderness, where reports of strange, wild people, the ‘Ferals’, are commonplace. The Ferals are said to be dangerous, violent freaks, outcasts from society. But Stella encounters one of them while out shopping one day and he doesn’t seem so very different from her ... Stella soon finds out that the Ferals are not simply the sinister criminals portrayed in the media. They are the product of the Centre’s research, a secret race of replica human beings kept solely for their body parts – until some of them managed to escape. Together, Stella and the ‘Labs’, as they call themselves, fight for freedom, acceptance and a place in society – a society that, often, would rather not know what is going on ...
