If you had the power of invisibility what would you do? Would you use it for good or for personal gain?
Griffin is a frustrated young man from the North East, with a troubled past and violent thoughts inside his head. He claims he has discovered the power of invisibility. But Griffin’s ‘powers’ have led to him being placed into Government care. After all, a normal, ill-educated kid can’t just invent invisibility. Even Dr. Sara Kemp, a promising young therapist can’t convince him to tell the truth about his talent. Griffin is thrown into a downward spiral of anger and eventually into a fatal ‘reign of terror’.
