Everyone’s familiar with the cliched quote from the Spiderman movies- “With great power comes great responsibility.” The teenage years of any individual are the most sensitive years and anything that happens during these years can either make that person or completely break him/her. That’s why big responsibilities like acquiring extra-ordinary superpowers at such a sensitive age can have some serious consequences. Some might use this power with the responsibility that these deserve to be used with while some might look for instant gratification through these and along the way lose track of everything they used to be. When two teenagers decide to run away from their usual lives after being treated as complete misfits, certain events lead them to possess super powers that initially get them into a lot of trouble. One has the power of hiding in the shadows through teleportation (Cloak) while the other one is like an angel who can make shiny blades come out of her hand (Dagger), the two start to falling in love with each other while they discover the responsibilities that they hold with these powers.
