"A breakthrough called CRISPR opens the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere, and designing our own children. A provocative exploration of its far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it. But there’s a dark side to weaning out illnesses, because the same process may be able to help parents change what a number of scientists in the documentary refer to as the germline, the basic DNA that gets passed on through the generations. Here is where the smiling parade of scholars, biotechnicians and academics differ because it opens up the moral question of playing God and potentially eradicating unwanted traits in future generations. As one of the subjects succinctly puts it, “Who gets to draw that line” between what’s moral and amoral genetic engineering."
