Film details


A homeless man, wearing a mysterious wristband, is admitted to a New York hospital suffering from convulsions and dies. Unsatisfactory test results prompt a young doctor to re-examine the body, but the morgue denies any knowledge of it. His subsequent investigations uncover the shocking details of a private medical research programme conducted by a leading neurologist, involving the use of unwilling human guinea-pigs.
