Fantasy adventure. Death row murderer Callum Lynch is supposedly given a lethal injection, but he wakes up in a secret hospital complex outside Madrid, from which he cannot escape. He is part of an experimental project being masterminded by a mysterious organisation interested in Lynch's ancestral connection to Aguilar, an assassin from 15th century Spain who was possibly able to discover the whereabouts of the Apple of Eden, which holds the keys to controlling mankind's free will. Using a revolutionary technology that synchronises his mind with Aguilar's, the organisation (led by father and daughter Alan and Sofia Rikkin) sends Lynch's mind effectively into the past, where he must fight his way to the Apple of Eden and bring it back. But not everyone wants the Apple to be found, in the 15th century or the present day.
