Synopsis: YUKI, a young woman living in a prosperous, metropolitan city discovers she has superpowers one day. However, she can only manifest her powers when under the influence of drugs. Different drugs give her different powers. Doing "speed" gives here super speed. When she "drops acid," she can literally drop acid! With her newfound abilities, Yuki decides to take to the streets to fight crime. But what's the benefit, when she must continuously submit herself to psychological damage? How can Yuki fight crime when she must also fight addiction? Every time she saves the city, she loses a part of herself. To make matters worse, Yuki's own sister stands in her way. Older sister SUKI is a corrupt police officer helping to facilitate the city's underground drug trade. Yuki's sneaky drug acquisitions lead her to come face-to-face and discover Suki's ongoing, nefarious activities. When Yuki refuses to cooperate and quit her super heroics, it puts the sisters at odds. Will Yuki fall to the villainous side, or will she use her newfound power to put an end to her sister's actions, and the city's immoral wealth? Can Yuki protect the city when she struggles to even save herself? This isn't your typical superhero origin story.
