THEY CALL IT THE PLAGUE. A generation of children born with extreme genetic mutations. THEY CALL IT A HOME. But it's a place of neglect and forced labour. THEY CALL HIM A FREAK. But Dog is just a boy who wants to be treated as normal. THEY CALL THEM DANGEROUS. They might be right. The story of a lost generation, and a boy who just wants to be one of us.
