A grotesquely powerful lab creature capable of medical marvels escapes but continues to share a magical relationship with a small boy.
Motivated by her mother’s premature death from cancer, Dr. Karen Stiles creates a hybrid creature using a Burmese python and adding the still-alive DNA of a prehistoric Mossasaur- the most enormous, vicious beast ever to roam the seas. She just never imagined how violent the hybrid would become.
After her son Rex helps the mutant escape, Karen will stop at nothing to recover what she hopes is the cure her mother never received- even at the risk of her son.
The emotional depth between Rex and his unlikely creature friend, plus Billy Two Snakes, an aged sage on an Indian reservation who believes the Creature and the boy coming to the Everglades is destiny at work, brings an unforgettable climax to this suspenseful horror tale.
