An eccentric genius is forced to confront the consequences of his own madness in this independent drama. Paul Hadley (Christopher Masterson) is a brilliant but emotionally fragile inventor who has developed a deep and not unjustifiable paranoia after a number of his most advanced ideas have mysteriously appeared as the work of other people. Convinced that someone has been spying on him -- perhaps the government, possibly industrial spies, maybe the Russians -- Hadley becomes increasingly reclusive as he works on his next project, a high-tech item he calls "the cube." One of the only times Hadley leaves his home is to eat, and after becoming a regular customer at a nearby diner, he strikes up a casual friendship with Jenny (Lyndsy Fonesca), a pretty young waitress. When Hadley leaves one of his notebooks at the diner, Jenny decides to stop by his place to return it; certain she's an intruder, Hadley attacks her before he realizes who she is, putting the woman into a coma and forcing him to confront the outside world whether he likes it or not. Intellectual Property was the first feature film from special effects artist-turned-director Nicholas Peterson.
