After his co-workers are killed, Anton, a young man with a terminal illness, must outwit the leader of a powerful cult that he comes to discover experimented on him.

 

Anton Denford (25), has for years lived with an unexplained medical condition - and a childhood memory of wanted terror suspect, Michael Conway. 

 

Exactly 25 years ago: Dr. Michael Conway and his friend and mentor 

Dr. Christopher State stood on the verge of a fantastic breakthrough in genetics - before being shut down by the government.

 

Now: Anton’s past comes full circle when his work colleagues are wiped out in a senseless massacre - with Anton as the target.

 

On the run from forces he can scarce comprehend, Anton must seek the help of disgraced journalist Jackie Makenfry and reclusive hacker Diego - to uncover who and what he is. 

 

Anton Denford must solve the mystery of his own past before Christopher State and his agents find him - and use him in State’s plan to control mankind.

 

WELCOME TO COBALT LIFE combines elements of THRILLER and SCI-FI. At the core is a superhero origin story, told in the language of Neo-noir.

 

A protagonist must discover his past and the sinister forces which shaped his existence - while shadowed by the most deadly and charming female villain of all time, KEIRA LANG (Dr. State’s right hand enforcer). KEIRA is the dark mirror to ANTON’S hero - her fate inextricably bound to his.
