Eight Lives

10 hours


A brilliant young doctor is dead … and someone has to take the blame.

Former refugee David Tran becomes the Golden Boy of Australian medical research and invents a drug that could transform immunology. Eight volunteers are recruited for the first human trial, a crucial step on the path to global fame for David and windfall gains for his investors.

They all played a role in David’s downfall.
