Storyline

In a dystopian future, an unidentified virus has caused a neurological disease of global proportions, decimating the majority of the earth's population. Little by little, as we observe the lives of a handful of survivors who still remain relatively unharmed by this illness, we understand their struggle to hopelessly attach to their former way of life, where even the simplest of affairs require great effort to be accomplished. Ultimately, as the last remaining souls suffer from varying degrees of memory loss, the urgent and paramount need to move forward with their lives will become an arduous task and a fierce battle with the inevitable.

An Interesting Concept That Did Not Result In An Interesting Movie
15 March 2017 | by sddavis63See all my reviews

I really liked the premise of this movie. It's a post-apocalyptic story, but unlike most movies in that genre this one doesn't feature zombies or other mutants - it just features people. Everyday, normal people - but the result of the epidemic that has decimated humanity is that almost everyone has lost their memory and their ability to create and retain new memories. So relationships have to start anew every single day - if those in the relationships can remember that they're in a relationship. People are lost and drifting. They have nowhere to go and no particular reason to go anywhere anyway. The story seems truly intriguing and on the basis of that premise alone I was pulled in and wanted to see this. And, in the end, it left me disappointed.

Like the people wandering aimlessly, this movie just didn't really seem to go anywhere. It was lifeless and listless. It packed no real punch; it had no real point. There was no particular storyline - aside from the global epidemic - and there was really no resolution at all to anything that we saw. In fact, if anything, the movie ended on as hopeless a note as was struck all the way through. There were moments when I felt some emotional connection (or at least some sympathy) with the characters as they struggled through this insane situation, but I have to say that those moments were few and far between.

Overall, I was disappointed. I really did think that the premise of this story was interesting. It just wasn't well executed. (2/10)
