Synopsis

How have the oldest life forms on the planet managed to survive all these years? Do they have a carefully plotted plan? Or is it just dumb luck? A trio of cockroaches is living a life of ease. Ensconced in a research lab, they're well fed and cared for. They just have to do their thing and run from a perceived threat when the lights go on, simple as that. But what happens when the researchers find out all they need to know? Will the guys in the lab coats just let these bugs scurry out the door? Then, a new player appears on the scene and this cockroach—bred aboard a spaceship—upsets all the rules. He's independent, he moves differently, he even thinks! Try something new, he says. Rules, schmules, is his motto. If the roaches change their pattern, will it be the dawn of a new day? Or will it mean curtains for cucarachas?
