While driving aimlessly after a quarrel with his girlfriend, a writer accidentally runs over and kills a child. The accident and its aftermath deeply traumatizes him. Over the next 12 years, he struggles to make sense of what happened and continue on with life, but when he looks in the mirror, he sees a murderer.
The film centres around Tomas (James Franco), a writer who causes an accident while driving and spends the next 12 years examining the effect of the tragedy on his life and that of Kate (Charlotte Gainsbourg), who lost someone close.
