This film is about a genetic research company that has developed a miracle device to sustain human life, but rich and powerful individuals seek to control the device and use it only for themselves, thereby breaking all moral and ethical codes. When the company’s CEO (Erika Hoveland) refuses to approve these illegal methods, she and her husband (Billy Wirth) are kidnapped by a team of mercenaries (Scout Taylor-Compton, Harley Wallen) hired by a disgruntled company board member (Richard Tyson) to keep them out of the way. Fearing for her parents’ lives, their teenage daughter (Angelina Danielle Cama) must develop an unlikely ally (Damien Chinappi) to save her parents from those who would kill to live forever.
Eternal Code is written, directed, and produced by Harley Wallen, Executive-Produced by Annette Cama and Co-Produced by Nancy Oeswein.
