Unsuccessfully framed for his wife's murder, Dr. David Krane attempts to find the real culprit by utilizing a new drug that allows him to experience the memories of other people first-hand. As he gets closer to the truth, the injections begin to take their toll on his life. Additionally, a history of alcoholism, a career crisis, and the involvement of police officers in the murder all conspire to prevent Dr. Crane from learning what really happened. The challenge, then, is for the doctor to overcome these obstacles before his time runs out. Written by Mike Yaffe <>

Dr. David Krane: [arriving] Hey.
Curtis Avery: Hey. Look at this, how is it they always get here before we do?
Dr. David Krane: The police band radios.
Curtis Avery: No, that was a rhetorical question, David. That was one to which I didn't really expect an answer.
Dr. David Krane: You know me Curtis, I think most of them will look better in plastic-zipper suits. You got the smoke?
Curtis Avery: No, I think it's something like fingerprints, we can just guess... Yeah, I brought the smoke.

One of those overlooked films...
8 May 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really surprised at the quality of this thriller. Ray Liotta stars. Why didn't I ever hear about it? What a thrilling surprise. Try it if you like sci-fi new-formula medical stuff that requires intelligent imagination. Lots of twists and turns. Buy the premise and you'll love the movie.
