Two brothers inherit a pharmaceutical company. One is a scientist who thinks he has discovered a universal cure for all diseases and a means of multiple prolongation of human life and who wants to share this discovery with the world. The other is a businessman who is aware that a universal medicine means death for the pharmaceutical industry and he justifies his greed with the planet's overpopulation and the possible negative consequences of this drug.

Technically and visually, the episode is mediocre at best, but addresses some universal questions worthy of attention. While it is too short and not sufficiently developed to deal with them seriously, at least it drives us on our own thinking, so I'll give it little slack.

5/10
