Sometime in the near future, paraplegic prison inmate Matt Mills meets ''The Board'' of Satoshi-Telefair Industries, who thank him for joining the Program. Under pressure and with a promise to make him walk again, Mills agrees to volunteer. He is injected with a synthetic nanomaterial and suffocated, only to wake up with restored use of his legs, yet alone in a steel cell in the first spoke of an experimental apparatus - The Wheel. A series of assailants inflict a multitude of damage to Mills' body and torment his mind, yet the synthetic nanomaterial not only restores his damaged organs, it re-engineers his strength. The experiment might be designed to kill, but Mills is determined to survive - and get back to his daughter before The Board finds her first.


Matthew Allen Mills is a cripple and a prisoner with a select DNA make-up. He agrees to have nanoparticles injected in him for an experiment in hopes of walking again. Of course, the scientists want to see how good they are doing by attacking Mills and breaking various parts of his body. Mills is not fond of the aspect of the experiment and reacts.

With the snowy aspect on the cover, I expected something Laurence Fishburne (The Colony) to show up. The film takes place almost entirely in one building on two sets.
