In the 1980's an eccentric billionaire named Robert Graham wanted to create the world's smartest kids, so he funded the largest legal genetic experiment in human history.
He felt that unintelligent people were breeding too often and smart people weren't breeding enough, so he decided to do something about it.
Today, 30 years later, the children of his eugenics experiment walk the streets of America as adults.
These super babies seem normal enough, but there is a hidden struggle to understand who they are and why they came to be.
They struggle to understand if the Genius Factory rewarded them or condemned them.
The founder is dead, the sperm bank is closed, and the records were burned. But now, for the first time, people who worked at the bank are ready to talk, the genius children are going to meet each other and find out who their fathers are.
Never before has nature vs nurture ever been tested quite like this.

A USER'S GUIDE TO CHEATING DEATH
The anti-aging industry is worth almost $10 billion a year. People want to live forever, and they want to look good the entire time. But how much of it actually works? And is any of it harmful?
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to separate the truth from myth as magazines, television, and countless internet articles tout new therapies, diets and health trends as the secret behind a healthier, happier, and longer life.
A User's Guide to Cheating Death is a documentary series that casts light on increasingly controversial procedures, diets and revived ancient therapies that are being sought by people desperate to dramatically alter their bodies or radically improve their health, and the booming industries that are more than happy to accept their business.
Health law professor, writer and debunker-extraordinaire Timothy Caulfield dives deep into the science, and the social issues behind today’s cutting-edge health trends in order to separate the truly good advice from the excess of high- priced placebos.
