We live in a time of momentous scientific leaps; a time when it's possible to sell our eggs and sperm online for thousands of dollars or test our spouses for genetic maladies. We live in a time when one fifth of all our genes are owned by someone else, and an unsuspecting person and his family can be pursued cross-country because they happen to have certain valuable genes within their chromosomes . . .
Devilishly clever, "Next" blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn. "Next" challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, "Next" shatters our assumptions, and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.
The future is closer than you think. Get used to it.
