Extremities-4 is a satire on human nature. It is an adult morality tale about the perils of being human and animal. We are what we do, not what we say.
Extremities-4 examines the origins and consequences of a dreaded Simian-like disease of the limbs and tracks the plight of four unlucky specimens weaving the landscape of an America livid and pale from a bad case of Darwinian deja vu.
Calypso Ambiliano, Casey Dawes, Jose Greene, and Steve Einstein are caught in the crosshairs between civilization and reality. Vilified and despised by a startled citizenry, the Authorities herd the afflicted into an esteemed Medical Research Center where they are proved, cut, X-rayed, and scanned.
Cal, Casey, Jose and Steve escape to the serenity of northern Vermont—only to be betrayed by old enemies. The four stumble into an old root cellar—a cave of beginnings—and witness the nation, the world, succumb into nature.
Extremities-4 is a macabre, bizarre, and funny tale of the familiar and the foreign.
