Filmin tells how Eddie Morra's character is so clever and popular, starting to use a very effective neuroleptic drug called NZT-48.

Today, piracetam is widely used among students and young professionals seeking performance enhancement. But there is not much data showing that healthy people increase their mental capacities.
