With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access 100 percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers.
The costumes for the movie were all built from the ground up and were constructed in under two weeks because the Costume Designer, Sarah Trost, had to leave to be a contestant on Project Runway. See more »

Before judging this film too harshly, remember it was made on a tiny budget and in a handful of days. It's basically a glorified student film, and if I were marking it, I'd give it an A. It's an interesting concept and the acting, while mediocre, shows promise, especially that of Jason Trost and Sophie Merkley. There's an awesome scene where the bitchy journalist guy from "Never Been Kissed" is dressed up as Uncle Sam and is armed with a flamethrower. It's worth a watch if only for that scene. James Remar is pretty good I guess, although it's hard to tell when he's basically a cackling, moustache-twirling level of villain. But in any case, this movie is a solid effort from writer/director Jason Trost. I'm looking forward to seeing what he offers to the genre world in coming years.
