The cell cycle told with a visually mechanical theme.
The audience flies through an immense factory that looks to be producing power cells, powered by nuclear-powered nuclei and chromosomes.
The story centers around the power cells and their journey through the cold, techno-punk style factory that is the human cell replication cycle and it starts off just after the Mitosis phase after the cells have been split up and they are now entering the G1 phase in their resting state.
They journey on a convener belt throughout the cycle, passing the G0 phase for non-dividing cells, a giant incinerator and trough into the mitosis chamber. Inside the cells, claws extend from either end and separate the chromosomes, followed by the cell splitting in half. The cells are carried back to the G1 phase where they are assembled into full cells and cycle completes.
SCENE NO. 1
CHARACTERS IN SCENE: Cell caps
Enormous hammer-like crushers flatten metal into thin cylinder-like caps while on a conveyor belt going into the G1 phase.

CHARACTERS IN SCENE: Cells
Complete cells are on a conveyor belt moving across the screen.
SCENE NO. 3
CHARACTERS IN SCENE: Cells, G0 Incinerator
The cells continue to move along the belt while hooks scan and pick up ineffective cells, tossing them into the G0 incinerator.

FADE INT. FACTORY
The crushers are pounding the conveyor belt, crushing and flattening metal into caps and are carried into the bright, fiery, glowing entrance of a huge machine.
A giant crusher slams down into view.
FLASH INT. BLACK
Meanwhile, power cells are carried down another belt towards the G1 zone while in resting state. Metallic claws seem to pluck cells from the belt at random, carrying them off to the G0 incinerator.
As the ineffective cells hurtle down through the tube to the incinerator, the working cells make their way towards the Mitosis chamber ready to be duplicated.
While inside the Mitosis Chamber, hooks extend from either pole of the power cell's inner chambers and pull apart the chromosomes. Robotic hooks unscrew the cell at halfway point and carry them off towards G1.
In G1, the cells are carried down onto the first belt where the robotic claws lower them onto the caps, creating new duplicated cells. The cycle completes.
