In the near future, nanotechnology administered into the bloodstream can sync with computer apps to augment the human genome.

In Nano, the inevitable has happened. Nanotechnology has taken over everyday life where apps work from within to augment the human genome. While these upgrades can do magnificent things like change hair and eye color instantly, levels of control from outside sources is starting to create fear in people. In Mike Manning’s film, a new law mandating and regulating this once elective procedure meets resistance from hacktivists who are conspiring to thwart the impending roll-out of “Nano version 2.0.”

The film serves as a proof of concept for a Sci-Fi series that they hope to sell to studios like Netflix or Amazon. This story is a light introduction to a vast idea, but easily contained into an individual and isolated film. The production values hold solid grounds, although we would of liked to see a deeper development on the characters to drive a deeper connection with the audience. The cast gives a surprising and convincing performance (we often get the feeling the actors don’t understand the content), in a film that doesn’t clearly identify a hero.
