Synopsis: A man discovers that his hallucinations are actually visions from past lives.

[man] There are among us a people, gifted with a perfect memory of all their past lives.

They call themselves Infinites.

Among the Infinites, two groups have vied for power.

On one side the Believers, dedicated to using their knowledge for the protection and growth of all humanity.

Against them stand the Nihilists, who see this power as a curse.

New technologies have given the Nihilists an opportunity to end all life on earth.

And the race is on for its control.

[man] Treadway, tell me you got it.

Yeah. Yeah, I got it. I got it.

[man] Treadway, you okay?

[Treadway] We can’t let them get the Egg back.

I can’t believe Bathurst would go this far.

He’s not the man we remember.

[Treadway] Sh*t.

They got it blocked off.

Get to the base of the crane.

[Abel] Treadway, listen.

Do not go up that bridge.

Treadway? Treadway?

[Treadway] Abel, listen to me.

If I fail, look inside.

I don’t know what miracle you think you’re gonna pull off, but there’s a 150-foot gap in front of you.

What is his plan?


[Abel] Leona. Please.

Leona, wake up. Wake up.


I’ll find you in the Beginning.

[Abel] I love you.


[man] Did you ever have a dream so real it felt like a memory?

You ever catch yourself in the mirror and it’s a surprise?

Like you expected to see someone else’s face staring back at you.

All these people all going somewhere, all doing something.

But what does it all add up to?

Maybe if I knew the answer, all the little things might click together.

They might make sense.

[man] Hey. Hi.

[woman] Evan. Right on time.

Nice to see you. How are ya?

Any trouble getting here?

No. No, not at all.


[Evan] Third interview this week.

[man] Here he is.

[Evan] Hey, gentlemen.

[man 2] Hey. How are you?

Pleasure to meet you.

Evan, great to meet you.

Thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate it.

Wow. Beautiful place you have here.

Thank you.

Absolutely gorgeous.

I just got a couple questions if you don’t mind.

Yeah, of course.

There are a couple of question marks in your past.

I recognize that.

You’re the first face people see when they walk into my restaurant.

And they’d be greeted with a smile.

I have had some issues in the past.

I did a full background check on you, Mr. McCauley.

I spoke to some of your past employers.

And you know what? They all said the same thing.

I’m interested to hear what they had to say.

They say you’re great!

They say you’re smart. He’s a smart guy.

Smart guy right here, huh?

That’s all good. I guess I’ve got the job then. When do I start?

Tell me about the customer you attacked.

He assaulted a waitress.

So you broke his arm.

I did. It was unintentional.

Excuse me, but he grabbed her ass.

I asked him to leave politely.

He put his hands on me. No charges were ever filed. Everything was dismissed.

So you just walked out of a shift at Locanda and you… you never came back?

I had a personal issue. That was six years ago.

Yeah, your manager told me that you were institutionalized.

For two weeks.

Two weeks. Melanie, it’s just two weeks. Just two weeks.

Look. My struggles with mental illness are a part of my past.

I haven’t had so much as an eye twitch since.

I think, if anything, getting through what I’ve been through only makes me stronger.

And I am 100% confident in my ability to manage here.

Thanks for coming in today, Evan.

Please. Look, I know what it looks like.

But my illness isn’t an issue you have to worry about.

I promise you…

Hey, we’ll be in touch, okay?

[sighs] No, you won’t.

Excuse me?

I know the brush-off when I hear it.

Mr. McCauley, you are clearly awesome at dealing with conflict.

You have no idea.

Thanks for coming in.

But you’re right. I don’t think I will need to be calling you.

You think you know my story because you ran a background check and made a couple of phone calls?

I knew yours when I shook your well-moisturized hand.

Thank you for your time.

[Evan] I get it. I do.

Who’s going to hire a diagnosed schizophrenic with a history of violence, when there’s a dozen candidates out there with sparkling clean records?

But what’s really on my mind is if I can’t get a job, I can’t pay rent this month.


I mean, dry-cleaning this suit wasn’t exactly free.

And more than that, I’ve gotta get something together real quick, because these meds, they’re running out.

And once they do, sh*t gets real.
