A young married couple attempts to remember their love after a memory loss-inducing ailment sweeps the world in this romantic, dreamy drama.
Director Chad Hartigan beautifully captures the little moments that define a relationship—warts and all—in this impossibly prophetic and heartbreaking story of young love in the midst of a global pandemic. Caught up in a whirlwind romance that leads to an impulsive marriage, newlyweds Emma (Olivia Cooke, PFF26’s THOROUGHBREDS) and Jude (Jack O’Connell, PFF23’s ‘71) fall madly in love even as concern grows about a fast-spreading virus that robs victims of their memories. With the news reporting stories like lone fisherman going off to sea and never returning, aspiring writer Emma is at first tempted to romanticize the disease (neuroinflammatory affliction, or NIA). All this changes when Jude begins to exhibit minor slip-ups: misplaced keys, forgotten names, even the couple’s wedding date. As labs around the world rush to find a vaccine, Emma will do anything to stop Jude from forgetting the life that they’ve built together.
