Jean Durand, a young scientist, invents a machine which can predict the date of one's death accurately. He tries to use a prostitute as a guinea pig to test the machine. Jean Durand is evil and his ambition knows no bounds. He goes so far as to say that his invention marks the 8th day of creation; but his fiancee 's father is just as cynical as he is. His rapaciousness is shown when he wants to use the machine to swindle people into paying to find out when they're going to die. Turns out, however, that some people are even less inclined to discover that than they are to pay for genetic tests to see which diseases they're likely to get down the road. In fact, some people will even riot to put a stop to his doomsday creation. Geez! Some people appreciate nothing!
