    From director John Woo comes a futuristic thriller based on a Philip K. Dick story that combines spectacular action with a spellbinding mystery. Michael Jennings (Ben Affleck) is a brilliant computer engineer hired for work on top-secret projects. After each job, Jennings` short-term memory is erased so he can not recount any project information.

    Emerging from his latest assignment - a three-year contract with an eight-figure paycheck, given to him by an old friend (Aaron Eckhart) - Jennings is shocked to be told that he agreed to forfeit all payment. It appears he is left with no comeback - until he receives a mysterious envelope containing clues to his forgotten past. With the help of a beautiful scientist (Uma Thurman), Jennings must race to solve the puzzle of his past... whilst avoiding a terrifying discovery which awaits him in the future.
