Marcus and Frances are estranged siblings, born 14 years apart with little in common except their parents. The recent death of their father divides them even further as Frances (Chelsea Alden) runs away from home days before the memorial, leaving her older brother Marcus (David Beatty) to care for their ailing mother.
The Human Project explores questions about family dynamics, human potential and even space exploration. It examines how our own personal dreams can often feel threatened by the relationships we have with our family. It also explores the individual contribution we each make to our global community, but at it’s foundation, the story is about family.
