Meet Brian Finch

Meet Brian Finch

Brian Finch, a young man clutching onto his dreams of becoming a rockstar, was watching everyone else in his life pass him by. His band dissipated, his siblings got married, and he worked as a temp. That was until an old friend of his gave him NZT, a mysterious drug that allows users to access their full brain capacity.

Meet Senator Edward Morra

Meet Senator Edward Morra

Brian found himself in an empty loft with Senator Edward Morra, with no clue how or when he got there. Morra, one of the most powerful and influential men in New York, turns out to be a regular user of NZT. He has access to an antidote that curbs the side effects of the drug, and offered it to Brian in exchange for his loyalty in future endeavors.
