Clayton Pierce is an agent working under deep cover. Although he is a top agent, he is questioning his loyalty after twenty years of service. His devotion has already cost him his wife, family and personal life. During a de-briefing from his last assignment, he is unknowingly administered the drug Oblivion, which destroys brain cells causing permanent memory loss. Within a few days of injection, the drug's effects become irreversible. Clayton will not only lose his memory, he will lose his identity as well. He realizes he can no longer rely on anyone at the agency to help him, not even his boss, Agent LaNova. With nowhere left to go, he appeals to his ex-wife, Kate, for help. Clayton and Kate must locate the antidote before it's too late.

On the chess board shown at the beginning (and then again later in the movie) the main character promotes the pawn to a knight which both he and the computer claim is a checkmate for black. It isn't a checkmate, since white can then take the knight with the bishop. There is a mate in three for black (rook to g2, white is forced to move the king into the corner, rook to a1, white is forced to interpose the bishop, rook takes bishop = checkmate) See more
