Flesh Mine

A man is held captive and harvested for the precious gemstones his body mysteriously produces.

A “Corie Geerders” FILM
WRITTEN BY Corie Geerders

David is struggling to make ends meet financially and to make matters worse he’s begun developing solid lumpy growths on his arms and legs..

After a biopsy, David is told by his doctor that he will need to be admitted overnight for further exploratory surgery.

Awakening from the anaesthesia David finds he is no longer in the hospital, instead he is strapped to an old dentist chair in a dark and dingy basement.

The doctor explains that David has a unique condition where dense deposits of minerals collect in his body, creating precious gemstones in his flesh. Harvesting the gems, the doctor intends to keep David alive and captive for as long as he pays off.

David’s only hope of survival is to learn to use his strange new affliction to escape.

But what he finds in freedom might be much worse...
