In the movie Gattaca, people were divided into two segments.
The Superiors and the Invalids.
The Superiors had the perfect storm of DNA, they were destined to win at everything.
The invalids had flaws and were destined to fail.
In one of the best scenes of the movie Vincent, an invalid beat his brother Anton, a Superior, in a swim race to the other side of the lake and back.
According to the laws of Gattaca, this shouldn’t have happened.
Vincent explains how he beat his brother in a race to the other side of the lake and back.
“I never saved anything for the swim back.”
What Gattaca didn’t realize is that there is no gene for the human spirit.
