The Plot

Jolt is a 2007 action comedy film directed by A.B. Stone and starring Angus Macfadyen, Minutes into the film, Macfadyen’s character, Nick Kelson, is informed by his boss that the company he works for is being taken over and that he will be out of a job in two weeks. Kelson angrily storms out of the office, driving erratically and ranting to himself. His car is hit by a truck, which throws him through the windshield. The next thing he knows, he wakes up in a hospital bed with his wife at his side and no recollection of how he got there.

As Kelson tries to piece together what happened to him, he discovers that he has developed the ability to generate static electricity.
