The movie is about how he tries to find his wife's killers and in the process is used by various people who try to capitalise on his disability.

My Comments:
A suspense thriller very different from the usual stuff. The movie is unique in the way that instead of taking the story forward it takes the story backward. Also it has a non-linear structure. The setting continuously shifts between the past and the present. We already know what has happened. The movie is about how and why it happened.
