Jax has the power of hypnosis.

His mentor is training him on how to use it but Jax still doesn’t have full control of his powers. Jax and his family are hiding from one of the worlds most powerful hypnotists- Dr. Mako

Dr. Mako had previously succeeded in persuading Jax to join a special school for people with hypnotic powers but when Jax found out about the evil plans of Dr. Mako, he escaped. Jax and his family now have to constantly move from place to place to avoid being caught.

When a multi millionaire finds out about Jax’s abilities, he recruits Jax to try to use hypnosis to live longer. Jax isn’t sure about this but he says yes and the hypnosis sessions begin.

Jax goes deeper and deeper into the millionaires thoughts. The hypnosis shows him many of the millionaires memories. The connection between Jax and the millionaire gets deeper and Jax finds himself being hypnotized to think he has a brother, just like the millionaire.

Jax sets out to find his supposed brother but his mentor discovers that it is actually a trap set by Dr. Mako.

Will Jax survive?
