A newly hired janitor for a scientific laboratory discovers that progress comes at a price, when she slowly develops a connection with one of the laboratory's experiments. Tensions come to a head when Helen finds out the fate of the “useless” experiment, but must stay silent to keep her job. In a great moral dilemma, Helen must decide to do what is right or to do what is easy.
