Masked is a coming of age story with touches of romantic comedy, action, and super hero goodness.

Synopsis

Shane is an ordinary high school teen with average problems. He isn't popular, he's constantly bullied, he has nerdy friends and he never seems to get the girl. He even struggles with getting his parents to notice him. 

When Shane's self esteem is at it's lowest, a misplaced shipment of unique pills falls into his hands. Thinking nothing of it, Shane takes one of the pills. Unexpectedly, they give him extraordinary abilities. His senses become enhanced, his agility greater, and his hopes and dreams of being popular become more promising.

Shane takes it upon himself to invoke justice as a superhero known as THE MASK.When Shane's crime fighting skills help better the community around him, it catches the attention of the evil organization the pills originally belonged to, the EFC. 

Meanwhile, Shane's school life takes a radically turn. With the pills boosting his confidence, he becomes popular in school, he gains better notoriety with the ladies, and he becomes the captain of the Ultimate Frisbee team. However, the consequence of trying to be popular soon catches up to Shane as he loses the trust and respect of his closest friends, as well as the girl he cares about.

When evil threatens his life at school, Shane must set things right and discover where his true powers come from, as the responsibilities of a superhero and a regular kid are held in question. Shane must rise to the challenge in order to keep balance in his life for the sake of his friends and himself.
