Director Shane Carruth ("Primer") returns with this strange, unconventional and abstract sci-fi mystery. Amy Seimetz stars as a woman whose life is shattered when a thief gives her a mysterious drug that forces her to do whatever he says. Years after this incident, she begins a tentative relationship with a man (Carruth), but both of them seem to suffer from strange memory problems, and she's still haunted by what happened to her before. "It presents us with a glimpse of the vastness of existence, of our inner nature, and of nature without that is as equally dreadful, enveloping, and terrifying as it is beautiful." - Philadelphia Inquirer
