Scientists find a way to make humans be invisible, but when one of them decides to test it on himself, they can't make him visible again. He gets angry and blames them, so he uses his 'gift' as he calls it for evil to seek revenge on the others.
The review of this Movie prepared by Diane

A twist to the standard Invisible Man story focusing more on the mental toll this would have on a person. Intersting premise which unforturately turns in to a "Die Hard" thriller at the end.
