In 1997 Osama bin Laden declared war on the USA. Pulitzer Prize winning CNN correspondent Peter Arnett embarked on a mission to locate and interview him. Asked by Arnett, "What are your future plans?", Bin Laden said, "You'll see them and hear about them in the media, God willing".

On the eve of 9/11, Arnett flew into New York City to stay with his daughter. The next day he watched in horror as the towers collapsed; his mind recalling the interview and bin Laden's veiled threat.

Charlie is a Zoo-Head, addicted to a powerful hallucinogenic with memory crunching side-effects. However, he’s forced by the authorities to enter a radically experimental rehabilitation treatment which is supposed to recover his memories and put his mind back together as it was prior to his addiction. However, the system crashes and Charlie becomes trapped in a series of horrifying ‘memory loops’. Haunted by childhood traumas, Charlie’s psyche repeatedly shuts down in defence, only to reboot with increasingly disturbing recurrences. In desperation at his suffering, his girlfriend reveals the true depth of her feelings for him which causes Charlie to realise he does have something precious to live for. But, it may be too late, the twists and turns of his visions intensify, potentially destroying his mind for good. That is unless the desperate efforts to save him can succeed.
