Gordon Dunn, a famed scientific pioneer, is mysteriously found dead just after the unveiling of his newest work, a groundbreaking device able to extract, record and play a person’s unfiltered memories. After his death, Gordon’s reclusive wife, Carolyn, delves deeper into her own private world when a mysterious man shows up claiming to be from Gordon’s past. With questionable motives he takes the machine and uses it to try and solve the mystery, beginning an investigation of memories that lead him down a path of guilt, grief, and betrayal to an unexpected answer.
The gorgeous modern house used as the home of the Dunns was discovered via the girlfriend of a crew member. Built on the outskirts of the town where they shot, it had been used for commercial purposes (a sizable expense) previously. The director feared they wouldn’t be able to afford it; however, fortunately for him, the owner was a Game of Thrones (2011) fan and decided to let them use it as long as he and his family got to meet Peter Dinklage.
