Aspiring author Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper The Hangover) is down and out, he's about to lose his girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish Sucker Punch) and is suffering a chronic case of writer's block when an old friend introduces him to NZT. Under the influence of this revolutionary new pharmaceutical Eddie's life changes instantly allowing him to realise his full potential. With every synapse crackling, he can recall everything he has ever read, seen or heard; learn any language in a day; comprehend complex equations; and beguile anyone he meets - as long as he keeps taking the untested drug. Soon Eddie takes Wall Street by storm, parlaying a small stake into millions. A feat that catches the eye of mega-mogul Carl Van Loon (two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niro) who invites him to help broker the largest merger in corporate history. But Eddie has also come to the attention of people willing to do anything to get their hands on his stash of NZT. With his life in jeopardy and the drug's brutal side effects taking their toll, Eddie is now in a desperate fight to stay alive in the most exciting paranoia fuelled action thriller of the year!
