A scientific quest begins a paranoid and claustrophobic adventure for unsuspecting townspeople who become the victims of a medical fringe project gone bad.
The 5ifth Cycle is a gripping adventure/thriller about a breakthrough in the treatment of cancerous brain tumors. When the volatile creation mutates, it evolves into an infectious virus capable of deconstructing the human brain resulting in bizarre psychotic behavior.
When it gets out of control of the military trying to contain it within a remote bioengineering complex in Death Valley, the nearby town of Arroyo Caliente is quarantined with no warning, no explanation, and a growing psychotic population. With their town effectively shut down and cut off, it is up to a select handful to escape the quarantine and, like rats in an experiment, venture back through the maze and infiltrate the source in order to save themselves.
The 5ifth Cycle is a complex, fast-moving medical mystery that turns the improbable into the plausible. In the end, you’re left with the uncomfortable notion that it could happen.
