Sylas, an EMT with a troubled past, is granted the power to sense and siphon pain from others. He is now able to ease the suffering of people around him— but at a cost. The more Sylas uses this power, the more it curses him with carrying the miseries of those he’s helped. Tormented by bearing the burdens of the world, Sylas is charmed by a charismatic drifter who shows him there is more than one side to this power.
