Synopsis

Thriller. The story unfolds in reverse, as a photograph is shown of a dead man lying face down on some concrete, which forms part of the mystery surrounding Leonard, a young American man who has no memory following the assault that left his wife dead and Leonard himself with brain damage. Since he is unable to remember anybody he has met since the attack, Leonard takes Polaroid photographs of everyone he meets and captions them accordingly. Even if Leonard succeeds in gaining revenge on the person responsible for the attack, he will not remember it.
