Synopsis of Hyde Edward Hyde possesses a strange gift (or curse) that he keeps hidden from everyone except his doctor. He experiences two realities, one which is his real life and the other; a dream world fueled by a strange neurological condition.
When a series of murders plague the city of Edinburgh with echoes of an ancient Celtic ritual called the "triple death", Captain Edward Hyde must set out to capture those responsible. In the process, he will find himself immersed in a mysterious and dangerous Celtic occult network led by very powerful figures.
He has to discover the answers not only in the real world but also in the sinister symbolism of the other world he inhabits.
Hyde has only two options: stop the killer or lose his mind.
