Plot Summary

Forty-year-old Christine Lucas wakes up in bed with a man she does not know, in an unfamiliar house. The man explains that he is her husband, Ben, and that she suffered brain damage from a car accident ten years earlier. Christine wakes up every morning with no memory of her life from her early twenties onwards. Christine receives treatment from Dr. Nasch, a neurologist at a local hospital who provides her a camera to record her thoughts and progress each day, and calls her every morning to remind her to watch the video in the camera. Soon, she starts to discover the truth around her. Written by Nebzyl

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia In the novel, Christine's diary is in the form of a journal / notebook, whereas in the film it is a camera. See more »
Goofs During the first time Dr.Nasch is driving, in a right-hand-drive car, the car is shown coming around a long right curve in a parking garage and he is on the right (wrong side of the road for England). However, that isn't a two-way road - it's simply the Down ramp into an underground garage, where the exit is a separate Up ramp. See more »
