In the near future, emotions have become a threat. Gabrielle decides to purify her DNA in a machine that will plunge her into her past lives and rid her of all strong feelings. She then meets Louis and feels a powerful connection to him – as if she had always known him. Circling each other through time, their story spans three distinct periods: 1910, 2014 and 2044. An intriguing and ravishingly romantic film set in a dystopia that has eliminated the possibility of love, inspired by Henry James’ novella The Beast of the Jungle.
