Storyline

The secretary Liza Raines becomes deaf after a shooting in a robbery, is evicted and later she is found by the social assistant Grant Kane living in her car. Grant brings Liza to a Transition Shelter to be rehabilitated, and she accepts to be submitted to an experimental treatment never tested in humans in the Center for Hearing Research. The leader of the research Dr. Gene Kramer is pressed by the CIA agent Aiden Porter that is funding his experiment to test his vaccine of restoration of cells in fifteen patients, and he advises that the rats subjected to the experiment became psychotic. The patients also become psychotic and suicidal, with the exception of Liza, the patient 14. She achieves the ability of hearing frequencies emitted by the brain and read minds as a side effect. Porter recruits Liza to work in CIA disclosing the innermost thoughts of the suspects, but later Liza finds his real hidden intentions. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

More than a TV movie but a possible TV series idea.
30 January 2006 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

Although it was slow at times it shed light of a TV series idea in the commentary on the DVD. There have been other series that was about a real person or a real thing, so a focus on the character so a focus of day to day life could work. I have come upon movies that have a potential TV series idea and now if they would stop calling this just a TV movie they have something worth it. I like a movie about a real possibility and this is it, watch it if you like science fiction or science fact. I know this is science fact some say no but a series like this could beat other shows so I hope this is going somewhere. Another thing my medical problems with my brain (epilepsy) years ago could have given me a better life if only something like this had happened to me.

One thing that many people say that several minds being listened to at once would be hard. In a crowd of people and all are talking and you want to hear one you focus on that voice. It's the same with the mind voice. I have talked to several of my doctors and they have commented that it is a real possibility.
