Synopsis:

Imagine a world in which a "super-GMO" designed to solve world hunger—fast-growing, extremely durable, and requiring almost nothing to survive—has gone completely out-of-control, overtaking the Earth and driving the human race almost entirely extinct. Paul and Magdalena are a late-twenties couple living in Bushwick, Brooklyn, who along with their upstairs neighbor Jaz are each fighting to remake the world as they see best, with very different ideas of what that should look like.
