After an injury, Graham (Eduardo Noriega) suffers from short-term memory loss, which causes him to fall back into the abyss of amnesia every 10 minutes.

But when temp Irene (Anna Mouglalis) starts working at Graham's company, they fall into an affair that begins to make a mark on his memory.

  • Despite its philosophical pretensions, the film is fairly lightweight, and its good-looking cast and sleek production values are more memorable than any of its heady themes. show more
