This sequel to DARWIN'S RADIO resembles one of the big-screen X-Men yarns, but at its center is the story of a family. Scientists Kaye Lang and Mitch Rafelson are shielding their daughter, Stella, one of the children who have mutated due to a retrovirus in human DNA, from a government that views the children as a threat. Stella's desire to meet others like her puts the mutated children at risk. Jeff McCarthy gives a low-key performance that doesn't get in the way of the action and captures the story's purpose--to depict human reactions to an unusual situation. J.A.S.
