THE MAN WHO THOUGHT LIFE
Steinmetz is an incredible being with superpowers. He can think things and make them real with his mind. His greatest ambition is to recreate life, to create a human being.
This is why he is going to meet with Max Holst, a brain surgeon, who can help him succeed by means of a tricky surgery. However, Holst sees Steinmetz as a dangerous madman and refuses to perform the surgery. An incredible standoff will then begin between the two men. After prodigiously focusing Steinmetz, who cannot convince the surgeon, will manage to create a doppelganger of the man who refuses to help him. A spectrum, a perfect twin who is smarter and more skilled than his original copy.
The doppelganger will progressively take Holst place. Holst is nothing: does he still exist?
