‘He found a cure that kills’

The Scientist is a 2020 American science-fiction horror feature film about a well-meaning medical man who unleashes an unspeakable terror by mistake.

Unconventional scientist Steve Unger struggles to care for his terminally-ill wife Darlene, who only has a few weeks left to live. While trying to stay strong for his wife and ten-year-old daughter Lily, Steve hastily embarks on a journey to develop a cure to fix Darlene and keep his family together.
