The world as we know it has been forgotten. A decade after a global
epidemic, those who remain suffer from lasting effects of the virus
– retrograde and anterograde amnesia. The survivors navigate a decaying landscape, unable to recall the past or create new memories.

Five interwoven stories each explore a different facet of life without
memory in a future that has no past. Two lovers struggle to stay
together, afraid that if separated, they will forget each other forever.
A boy loses his guardian and searches for a new home beyond the
limits of the city. A violent young man takes what he needs to survive, no matter the cost. A professor researching a cure makes a connection that is not what he expected. And a girl living with her father in an underground bunker safe from the virus must decide whether to risk infection to regain her freedom.

Claire Carré’s debut feature is a poetic and thought-provoking scifi
drama, strikingly beautiful and full of compassion.

The screening is presented in collaboration with Biograf Panora / Folkets Bio Malmö.
