Brian Finch (a 28-year-old burnout and struggling musician) is introduced to NZT-48, a miracle drug that gives him access to every neuron in his brain. For twelve hours after taking the pill, he becomes the smartest person in the world and is able to perfectly recall every detail of his life & is capable of prodigious leaps of intuition and reasoning.
With the mysterious U.S. Senator Eddie Morra providing him with an immunity shot to counteract NZT's deadly side effects, Brian uses his enhanced abilities to help FBI agent Rebecca Harris, but the problem is the FBI doesn't know about the shot and Brian has to keep both worlds separate.
