Reece Oliver is on the run. After participating in an experimental drug program to rid himself of his destructive alcoholism, he discovers he had been lied to. The doctors leading the program never intended to cure Reece. The drugs were supposed to devolve subjects into an earlier form of man. What Reece became, however, was altogether different. He now must remain one step ahead of the doctors, while fighting the urge to use his new abilities, for if he does, he is left with one more scar.
