In an isolated laboratory, Professor Gerald Deemer works in a food that would help alleviate hunger that threatens to cause population growth. His experiments have led to certain results; but at the expense of serious disappointments. A day that has absent, two of his colleagues inject the food, with frightful consequences leading them progressively to death, which seems to be Acromegaly. One of both dies, while the other attacks the professor and injects the product before dying. During his battle, a giant tarantula that also received an injection leaves his cage. Since then, it does not stop
grow up.
