Christine wakes up every morning with all her memories of the past 16 years erased. Her long-suffering husband has developed a daily routine to bring her up to speed, and she secretly sees a psychologist on the side who’s trying to help her. What sort of trauma/accident/attack caused her amnesia? Is her husband what he seems? Is the psychologist? Do we care?
