Adam’s reputation is ruined. Worse still, the funding he requires for his experiments has been withdrawn. He is a legitimate genius, but it is his determination to move from theory into practice that has lead to his undoing.
Adam’s initial experiments failed and the subsequent controversy lead to the withdrawal of all support for his “unorthodox” methods. Undeterred, Adam resolves to prove his critics wrong and “reclaim” his funding by robbing a high security bank. Whatever his experiment, it seems it will play a part in the heist. In a risky step Adam begins to experiment on himself. He has been injured in the past, suffering a horrible burn to his arm, but he presses on. After initial success, he begins to experiment in full. Under cover of darkness, Adam tests the device. When triggered it makes Adam flicker in and out of existence—”shifting.” He disappears and reappears some distance away.10 minutes
