Circa 1969, several strangers, most with a secret to bury, meet by chance at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one night, everyone will show their true colors - before everything goes to hell.
A daring synthetic biologist, after a car accident kills his family, will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force and the physical laws of science.

We're the sum total of what has happened to us and how we processed it. That's what makes us us. It's all neurochemistry.
Do you really believe that? That's all I am? Your children? Just pathways, electrical signals and chemistry? You have kids that love you and a wife that adores you and we have a scientist.

I honestly just don't know where to begin. I think I'm just going to ask... how did a script like this get made. How. This is beyond mind boggling. A script so incredibly bad that it brings down pretty cool production design, cinematography and acting to an embarrassing level. This quite literally feels like a 5 year old child wanted to write a science fiction movie. Everything about the story, the dialog, the sci fi conceptual framework, it was all written horribly. Wish I could be more positive here and forgiving like I am with nearly every movie I see but this was confusingly bad. I don't understand how a script in this condition could possibly get made. Keanu Reeves and the production team are certainly not at fault here, they did what they could with such an embarrassingly bad story.
