Russell Williams is a hard-drinking, unemployed computer analyst with no family and no prospects. But Williams has one thing going for him - his genotype. At the Trade Winds Lounge in scenic Daytona Beach, Florida, a stranger plants the notion in Williams' head that the key to all his problems is in his blood.
