Short Summary

Michael Rose's paranormal experiences in his youth afford him the mental fortitude to navigate the unforeseen challenges brought about by the militarization of his invention to cure blindness. No one stopped to ask: if the technology could enhance the function of the eye, what else would it see?

Michael Rose finds himself incarcerated in a mental health facility, his identity seemingly erased from public record. He must navigate a treacherous faction in the shadows - as well as battle to maintain his own sanity - in an effort to regain his freedom and tell the world what he has seen.
