In a contemporary subversion of the Bride of Frankenstein tale, this film depicts a scientist named Carl, who genetically engineers Lix, a girl with narcotic blood while working on ‘Project Elixir’. Her veins contain a heroin-like drug with powerful effects on those who drink it. After rescuing Lix from addicts, Carl finds himself dangerously walking the line between love and narcotic addiction.
