On the remote New Siberian Islands, hunters search for tusks of extinct mammoths. One day, they discover a surprisingly well-preserved carcass with liquid blood and muscle tissue. Clone researchers take over in search of cells with intact DNA. Resurrecting the woolly mammoth is a manifestation of the next great tech revolution: genetics. A multi-million dollar game. It may turn our world upside down.
