Mika and Jake earn a slim living as test subjects in medical experiments. When their waiting room banter deepens into a real relationship, these drifting twenty-somethings must navigate a treacherous maze of emotion, trust and survival as their carefully monitored and medicated lives bleed into their true selves. Lab Rats is a sharply comic love story that poignantly examines the raw connection between two damaged humans as they struggle to redefine what it means to escape.
