SONG: When we are no longer around to write our love on each other’s eyelids by Library Tapes
In the aftermath of a devastating World War III the human race is fractured, struggling to rebuild . Two psychiatrists operating in Paris named Olivia (Swinton) and Christopher (Hoffman), use time travel to enter the memories of their clients and even venture into their past lives in order to gain a deeper understanding of them and help them recover from their physical and psychological trauma. Their clients include the usurped United States President (Shannon) and a visionary military leader (Gurira).
But when Olivia’s wife Florence (Cotillard) attempts suicide and ends up in a coma, Olivia becomes convinced that her memories and previous lives hold the key to waking her up. She will travel across the ages, risking her own sanity, to bring back the woman she loves. Meanwhile Christopher becomes romantically obsessed with a missing mute patient he treated (Gordon-Levitt), and believes that traveling through his memories will enable him to find the man. These obsessions will put all their other patients minds in danger as well.
