Synopsis: An animated dramedy that merges reality and fantasy. Five frozen embryos in a fertility clinic, suddenly find themselves defrosted due to a technical problem. Although the embryos are siblings from the same mother (GAIA), they each have a different sperm donor father and therefore, due to paternal genetic make-up, each is endowed with super-powers in different areas. The embryos are African-American (LEWIS), German (ALPHA), Lithuanian (RAOUL), Japanese (TESTO) and origin unknown (BARRY). They aspire to go back to a human womb (preferably their mother’s) and be born, and so they embark on a journey to find their mutual biological mother, and discover why they were never reunited with her. What they don't know is that their mother is already married with a new man, and has a naturally-born child by now.
