The film’s synopsis reads: ‘Nick Bannister (Hugh Jackman), a private detective of the ghost, navigates the dark, seductive world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories. Living on the edge of Miami’s sunken coast, he changes forever when he takes on a new client, Mae (Rebecca Ferguson).

Towards the end there is a voiceover where Mae says, “That machine of yours, how close can you get before the illusion is broken?”

A simple matter of being lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. As Bannister fights to uncover the truth about Mae’s disappearance, he uncovers a violent conspiracy and must ultimately answer the question: How far would you go to keep the ones you love?’

Lisa Joy wrote and directed the film after co-creating Westworld with husband Jonathan Nolan, which has had three successful seasons on HBO.
