Naked

Somewhere in Eastern Europe, due to an accident in a laboratory, an unlikely hero gains superpowers that he does not want. Rather than saving the world from villains, he would prefer to live on as before. The situation is complicated by the fact that while he gains awareness of his power, it also causes problems in his everyday life. Stuck in an elevator, he meets a girl who likes him – and wants to help him.
