A tragic accident has robbed Alex of her memory.  Her attentive husband is eager to fill the gaps for her. But the more he tells her the more she hates who he tells her she is.  Determined not to remember at all costs and with the help of a young doctor with a head full of maverick theories and a very new stethoscope, she agrees to meet the mysterious fellow patient, Stranger.  Together they begin to explore and enjoy the present, but it soon becomes clear that his memories won’t stay forgotten with terrifying consequences for both them and the Doctor.
