Cali and Nira are non-identical twins. Before they were born, their genes were edited to make them immune to a disease associated with memory loss. The procedure had never been attempted before. It was a choice based on theory. A choice with an unknown outcome. A life, lives, altered. The human race has never been the same.
Spanning eight decades, Cali and Nira navigate waiting rooms and clinics, forced to endure relentless assessments and reviews, constantly in dread realising their own fragility. Some see them as incredible, while others call them monsters. All they ever wanted was to be normal.
