In this fictional BioShock prequel, two brothers who excel in the art of sculpture move to Rapture to make new lives for themselves. Everything is going well until the introduction of plasmids which supposedly allow for an ‘easier life.’ According to Newton, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. There is always a toll to pay when something is too easy for what seems like no cost.
