A grieving mother, Telly Paretta, is struggling to cope with the loss of her 9-year-old son. She is stunned when her psychiatrist and her husband tell her that she has created eight years of memories of a son she never had. But when she meets the father of one of her son's friend who is having the same experience, Telly embarks on a mission to prove her son's existence and her sanity. Written by
Before Telly starts tearing away the wallpaper in Ash's office we see a framed Hockey Jersey and five smaller framed pictures on the wall hanging over a desk. When she starts cutting the paper everything is still there, but the desk has been moved. Then when we pull back the only thing left is three small picture frames; everything else has disappeared.

This is one of those movies that assumes all audiences are just complete morons, devoid of any kind of common sense and have IQ level of below 50 right from the start.
It's like a movie where the main character has amnesia, and throughout the whole movie he's trying to figure out who he is, and why he is being chased by thousands of secret polices from all over the world, but does not realize until the very end of the movie that all he has to do is look into his driver's license in his pocket.
The basis of this movie is that even the parents can't remember that their own kid ever existed because their memories have been wiped out selectively. But what about their relatives, the kids' friends from school, teachers, their neighbor, their friends, medical records, anyone from their neighborhood who might have seen them, and the kid's personal belongs? I mean is it possible to wipe out every memory associated with kids from anybody who ever interacted with him? There are so many other countless flaws that make no sense at all in this movie that it'll take days to list them all.
This is absolutely the worst movie of 2004.
