  • Brian Finch develops superhuman abilities after taking a mysterious drug called NZT, which finds him landing on the FBI's radar as he works to clear his name of an NZT-related murder.

  • After a mysterious drug called NZT gives him the ability to use 100% of his brain, Brian Finch uses it to help his sick father, but he also finds himself a suspect in the murder of the man who gave him the drug, and to clear his name he must find the real perpetrator.

  • Lifelong screw-up Brian Finch discovers amazingly performance-enhancement after friend Eli Whitford gives him a mysterious pill (NZT). When he seeks more, he finds Eli murdered, possibly for his stash, and himself the prime suspect. Under NZT he can just outsmart the FBI, which brings special agent Rebecca Harris solidly into the NZT secret task force. As Brian uses more NZT to find Eli's killer amidst other investment bankers using NZT, he meets a senator with a tempting proposition, a situation that makes Rebecca's superior want to hold Brian for study (as he's become the only known user without adverse side effects). Rebecca insists he also be made a departmental resource. Brian's willing, but smart enough to demand a price.
