What if you could take a pill that made you the best version of yourself? That’s the dilemma faced by loser Eddie (Cooper), a sad sack trying to write a novel.

Then his ex-brother-in-law slips him an illegal drug and soon he’s finished his novel and is making R14 billion on the stock exchange.

But soon others want to know his secret . . . The plot is fast-paced and the visuals are gripping, but it’s all just a bit too slick and morally questionable to really draw you in.
