Featuring a stellar cast including: Patrick Brammall, Emma Booth, Emily Barclay, Rodger Corser, Genevieve O’Reilly, Sean Keenan, Rob Collins and Hannah Monson, Glitch is an epic paranormal saga about love, loss and what it means to be human, and the dark secrets that lie beneath our country’s history.

Meanwhile on the run and desperate, John Doe (Rodger Corser) crosses paths with the mysterious Nicola Heysen (Pernilla August) head of Noregard Pharmaceuticals. Sharing explosive information with him, she convinces him that that the only way to discover answers to his questions is to offer himself up for testing inside their facility. But when he finally enters the lab, the experiments take an unexpected turn
