Infused with her trademark wit and uncanny observations on human nature, The Humanity Project is at once a sprawling, multi-faceted ensemble drama, and a closely observed commentary on our self-obsessed 21st century society. The story follows a far flung group of individuals now settled in the San Francisco valley, each wrestling with economic, social and personal issues, and who cross paths by way of the bizarrely innocent idea for a "Humanity Project." After surviving a shooting at her school, Linnea is packed off to live with her estranged father, Art, who doesn't quite understand how he has suddenly become responsible for raising a sullen adolescent girl. His neighbor, Christie, is a nurse, distracted by an eccentric and wealthy patient, Mrs. Foster, who has put her in charge of the Project, though she does have an eye for the Foster's handyman, Connor. No one seems to know where Connor lives, but he has become the one person Linnea can confide in, perhaps because his own home life is a war zone; his father has suffered an injury and without health insurance, become addicted to mail-order painkillers. As these characters and many more hurtle toward their fates, The Humanity Project is born: Can you indeed pay someone to be good? At what price?
