Peyton Westlake is a scientist that is developing a new type of synthetic skin to aid burn victims. However, one night after making a discovery that the skin lasted longer in darkness due to the synthetic cells photo-sensitivity to UV light, Peyton is attacked and left for dead by a ruthless mobster, Durant, after his girlfriend, an attorney, runs afoul of a corrupt developer. Westlake survives, but is left with burns on most of his body. While hospitalized as a comatose John Doe, he is unwittingly subjected to a radical treatment that destroys the nerve endings connected to his skin, neutralizing his ability to sense physical pain but increasing his brain's emotional output to compensate. Now half-crazed, Westlake escapes the hospital and decides to get revenge on the criminals who took his life away while trying to reconnect with lost love.
