Dir: Jorge Derado



John (Mark Strong) is a recently widowed man with the ability to enter people’s memories. In the past, John used his abilities to solve criminal cases, but after a stroke during a session gone wrong that leaves him incapacitated and financially broken, he is left a shell of his former self. Desperate for an assignment, John asks his superior, Sebastian (Brian Cox), for a new job. The case he receives is that of a troubled girl, Anna (Taissa Farmiga), who has begun a hunger strike.

While the parameters of the job seem quite simple, Anna proves to be much more challenging than John expected. She’s intelligent, insightful…and possibly one of the most conniving and manipulative people that he’s come across in his career. As John delves deeper into her memories to discover the reason for her hunger strike, everyone surrounding Anna’s life becomes a suspect – her family, her nurse, even his old mentor Sebastian himself.
Produced by Jaume Collet-Serra (ORPHAN, UNKNOWN, NON-STOP), can you guess the twist ending?
