Synopsis
Amos Hatter has to take care of his younger scientist brother, Joseph. The mentally deranged Joseph experiments with a growing formula, but finds the opposite and shrinks himself down to mouse size. Amos helps him to regain his normal size, but is murdered by Joseph out of fear to be submitted to a mental institution. The drug wears off, however, and small-sized Joseph has to face a cat and a rat hunting him.
