If our memories make us who we are, then what happens when we change them?
Logline: A musician struggling with divorce and inability to see his daughter, meets a woman who introduces him to a world of memory recall and manipulation.
Nick, a musician working a dead end job, struggles to cope with an impending divorce and inability to interact with their young daughter. He meets Rachel, a smooth talking, pool shark who takes Nick to a place called The Parlor where drugs provide the intense re-experience of memories. Sid, a self-proclaimed healer and mastermind behind the illegal therapy, also offers the opportunity to manipulate a memory. From what begins as a harmless recollection exercise, Nick must soon make sense of disturbing discoveries.
