Director Martin Grof’s sci-fi thriller Sensation has been announced for an April release on Amazon Prime Video. The marketing describes the movie as “David Cronenberg meets Tenet.”
As far as Andrew knows, he’s just an ordinary British postman. But he can’t shake the feeling there’s some secrets hidden in his family history, so he donates some DNA samples to a secret agency. The truth is wilder than he figured…he’s heir to superhuman powers that he’s just unlocked! Seems his grandparents allowed themselves to be experimented on by the government, and the result is Andrew’s heightened senses.
Soon, Andy finds he’s not alone in this. Others had ancestors who did the same thing and now they have powers too. But what does this all mean? And what is the agency REALLY after? Are they all in danger?
