The DNA Test

When friends of George Edwards learn about their ancestry by taking DNA tests, he is intrigued. He’s aimless, working as an Uber driver, and looking for direction, so he decides to take ownership of his heritage and administer the test. After receiving his results, he finds himself the focus of attention from a series of strangers. At first, the attention is welcomed, but soon it turns sinister, and he soon discovers that a religious sect believes that he is meant to usher in the Messianic Age. He also learns, to his horror, that his death is essential for that age to come. His exceptional DNA is both blessing and curse.
