As the name suggests, hypnotics have the power to control the mind of others. They can distort reality by simply making eye contact with the other person. Furthermore, they use this power to influence their victim’s world to their advantage.

Rourke, also in his journey, finally finds a partner with a lot of knowledge of these hypnotics. Even though she is a stranger to him, she is his only hope of finding his daughter. So finally, in this journey, the mystery of the hypnotics starts unfolding. 

Interestingly, the closer he gets to the truth of hypnotics, the farther he gets away from his daughter. You will now have to watch to know whether, in the film, Rourke can get back to his daughter or not and at what cost.
