Kara and Mia are sisters who emigrated from Eastern Europe and have been living in America for a number of years pursuing what seems an increasingly elusive American dream. Kara works long hours in a factory so that she can make the mortgage payments, put food on the table, and enable her younger sister to obtain her PhD in biochemistry. Mia is not just any doctoral student, however. She is brilliant, and her field of work under the watchful gaze of her supervisor, Dr. Kohn, is the world of ants. Completely unworldly and awkward with her fellow humans, Mia is very much at home with her ants, and is on the brink of a groundbreaking discovery - the ability to radically alter nature and convert workers into queens. If she succeeds the discovery would revolutionize biology and would have far-reaching implications for other species, including man. Mia is already rehearsing her Nobel Prize acceptance speech in front of her mirror when as luck would have it, fate rudely intervenes - forcing Mia to come out of her shell and improvise a radical solution to save the lifestyle she has almost grown to love, her sister's teetering sanity, and her beloved ants.
