What if every memory that haunts you could be erased? What if something truly horrific had happened to you and the person who loves you most could wipe that from your mind? Would you want them to? This is the ethical dilemma that 18-year-old Marcus Lewis faced when his identical twin Alex awakened after a motorcycle accident and Marcus was the only person Alex recognized. With no memories at all, Alex relied entirely on his brother as he tried to understand who he was. Working from an autobiography by the twins, Perkins and the Lewis brothers craft a powerfully cinematic adaptation that helps the audience explore their incredible story and remarkable 35-year post-accident journey. It's a profoundly moving examination of memory and trauma, personal responsibility and, ultimately, love. Written by London Film Festival

This is like The Truman Show meets What's Eating Gilbert Grape, except it's real. The story is so sad but in some strange way still infused with beauty and love. The metaphors are the most powerful I have ever seen. I truly applaud the courage of these two brothers who started together, were torn apart, and finally made it back to each other despite the darkness they both experienced in their own way. Truly a work of art and a labor of love.
