Highly gifted scientist Sebastian Caine (Kevin Bacon) heads a top-secret US Government research project to unlock the secret of invisibility. He develops a serum that works successfully on animals and induces complete invisibility. An ecstatic Caine recklessly disobeys Pentagon orders and experiments on himself. His remarkable transformation results in unimaginable power that seems to suffocate his sense of morality.
Unfortunately, the dangerous gamble goes terribly wrong when the procedure cannot be reversed. Caine, "the hollow man", and his chief lieutenants Linda McKay (Elisabeth Shue) and Matt Kensington (Josh Brolin), frantically attempt to counteract the effect. But the invisible Caine, fueled by latent megalomaniac tendencies, quickly becomes intoxicated with his newfound power. The secret laboratory becomes a house divided as the scientists realize their suddenly omnipotent leader perceives them as a threat to his very existence.
