After a car accident kills his loving family, a daring neuroscientist (Reeves) will stop at nothing to bring them back, even if it means pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force, and the physical laws of science themselves.

“From my experience working with Keanu on ‘The Matrix’ franchise through our collaboration on ‘Constantine,’ I have always been impressed by Keanu’s ability to bring a genuine level of humanity to the sci-fi genre through his performance,” said di Bonaventura in a statement.

“I am looking forward to collaborating with Keanu once again on this unique take on what lengths a person will go to alter the past, and the implications of those actions.”
