Synopsis for "Chapter 1"
David is being questioned by The Interrogator in an unknown location and tells the story of how he got to this point in his life.
David begins his life as a happy child, but quickly falls into trouble with others and the law. His uncontrollable telekinetic powers manifest occasionally and drives him to attempt suicide as an adult. He is haunted by visions of a "devil with yellow eyes".
While staying at the Clockworks Psychiatric Hospital, David is surrounded by patients with mental problems, including his best friend, Lenny, but his life changes when a new patient, Syd, arrives. David is immediately intrigued by her and wants to meet her, but she refuses to have anyone touch her. Despite this, she agrees to be David's girlfriend when he asks her.
The Interrogator continues grilling David (who is under the watchful stare of The Eye) and David continues to tell about his relationship with Syd.
On the day that Syd is released from Clockworks, David works up the courage to finally kiss her. When he does, their minds switch places and David finds himself trapped in Syd's body. Even stranger, the rooms of Clockworks all mysterious seal themselves, trapping David's body (with Syd's mind) inside a room. Tragically, Lenny is caught in a sealed doorway and dies.
Syd (with David's mind) is released from Clockworks and eventually transforms back into David's body. Very confused, he goes to his sister's house to stay with her. While he is staying there, his powers erupt again and he is visited by Lenny, who admits that she is dead.
Later, as David is calling around looking for information about Syd, he is pursued by Kerry and Ptonomy, who he manages to elude, but only by being captured and taken tothe facility where he is imprisoned and questioned.
During the ongoing interrogation, David gets increasingly upset with the Interrogator. Finally his powers flare up and he telekinetically stabs the Interrogator with a pen. He then blasts everyone in the room before being gassed unconscious.
David awakens to find himself half-submerged in a swimming pool with the Interrogator holding a dentontator switch which will electrocute the pool and David. David is warned telepathically by Syd that she is coming to rescue him and he should go under the water. David sinks under the water while the room erupts in flame, killing the Interrogator and the armed guards. Syd, Kerry, and Ptonomy then rescue David and fight their way out of the compound, each using various powers to aid their escape. They all flee to the shore, where they are greeted by Melanie who welcomes David.
