An alien spore inhabits a terminally ill man’s brain via a bolt of lightning which leaves him with amnesia. Believing him to be a potential threat, a government agent chases after him only to get caught up in a conspiracy going back decades to the MK Ultra program.
After being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor giving him only weeks to live, JIM REILLY, 36, a science teacher, decides to go out on his own terms and leaves town without telling anyone anything. Drunk in a forest in the middle of a raging thunderstorm, Jim comes across a weather research station where he gets hit by a bolt of lightning. The next morning Jim wakes up with no memory of who he is or how he got there.
