Plot Summary
Sam Staziak (Daniel Quinn), a rookie cop with the Los Angeles Police Department, is also a "scanner" who can read, control and even destroy the minds of others. He takes drugs to suppress his self-destructive powers. But a series of cop killings by otherwise law-abiding citizens seems like a mystery only a scanner can solve, so Staziak's boss and adoptive dad, Cmdr. Harrigan (Richard Grove), asks the rookie to go off his meds and track down whoever is turning average folks into assassins.
