When a man wakes up in an interrogation room, he immediately asks after his wife and daughter, only to discover that his mind has been hacked and his memories replaced – all part of a plot to steal an incredible invention: the world’s most precise quantum logic clock. Featuring a brooding performance by 'Game of Thrones' star Simon Armstrong, this sci-fi thriller is a complex consideration of the nature of uncertainty, identity and truth.
