From official release/information:

Genetopia is about a dangerous world and its inhabitants. It's not a dangerous world because it's filled with monsters but because it can make a monster of anyone who touches, drinks, breathes, or walks in the wrong place. Nano- and biotechnology got into the wild a long time before our story, and True humans are doing everything they can to remain the dominant species. In this world any deviation from the norm can mark you as non-human and cost you your liberty or your life. Flintreco Eltarn (Flint) has lost his sister Amberlinetreco Eltarn (Amber). Amber has yellow surrounding her pupils, a result of a childhood illness, but all the Elders judged that she is True human. Yet, Amber's abusive father hates her and calls her a mutt. When Amber disappears Flint suspects their father has sold her into the mutt trade. Once you're declared a mutt you have no rights and are considered an animal no matter how human you may look. No one in the village seems to care so Flint sets out alone to find his sister.
