One week after a seemingly harmless car accident, a 45- year-old man suffers total amnesia. Christening himself the “New Richard,” he embarks upon a new life with a new wife far away from his family. Sixteen years later, his oldest son returns with a camera to investigate why his father’s memory never returned. Along the way, the son not only discovers many deep-rooted emotions that had never been dealt with, but also uncovers startling facts that shed a very different light on his father’s memory loss. Was Richard really struck by a horrible affliction, or was he perhaps trying to escape from a life he could no longer lead?
“A carefully crafted, thought-provoking family mystery story about memory… well worth watching.”
