Eva is a woman desperate to get in front of her fate. One of a growing number of human mutants who lack the ability to perceive time, she is aware of the disaster that's set to befall her and her lover, Marcus. Knowing she has seen too much, she believes (or hopes) that she can also alter her destiny. It's a feeling most of us have experienced, even without the benefit of Eva's heightened self-awareness. The film is reminiscent of key works of the French New Wave, as if Alain Resnais were to awaken in a Vons Supermarket, unable to find his way out.
