“Christine wakes every morning in a state of panic. Due to a horrible accident she has no memory and relies on daily notes from her husband, Ben, to understand her life. That is until Dr. Nash, a neuropsychologist, begins to work with her. Little by little, Christine pieces together her lost memories until she is dangerously close to discovering the truth of her past. This is a psychological thrill ride that, at times, leaves you uneasy, queasy, and afraid of the next twisted turn. I couldn't put it down!”
