Eron Sheean’s dark new thriller Errors of the Human Body offers a revealing look at the moral dilemmas often faced in bioengineering. Michael Ekund (The Call) stars in the film, which is based more closely on science fact than fiction. The film exposes the ethical costs of scientific progress while revealing the consequences of ‘playing God.’ Errors of the Human Body opened in select theaters this weekend, and is also available on Cable VOD, SundanceNOW and other digital outlets.
Obsessively struggling to develop a cure for a rare genetic ailment, which caused the death of his infant son, Geneticist Geoff Burton (Michael Eklund, The Call) is forced to relocate to an isolated research facility in Dresden, Germany. Completely consumed by his research, Burton is on the brink of discovery but soon realizes that his own work may bear more consequences than he previously thought.
