With his partner Caprice (Seydoux), celebrity performance artist Saul Tenser (Mortensen, in his fourth collaboration with Cronenberg) publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Meanwhile, Timlin (Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements revealing a mysterious group that wants to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.
