A young boy stands on a station platform. The train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or stay with his father? An infinity of possibilities rise from this decision. As long as he doesn't choose, anything is possible.
Every life deserves to be lived.

The present day, more or less. Nemo is 35 years old, married to Elise, with two children. An ordinary man.
It¹s the year 2092. Mars is the number one holiday destination; genetic advances have rendered natural death obsolete. In hospital, as the world's media looks eagerly on, an old man is dying. The last mortal on earth, he is 120 years old. He doesn¹t know it, but his name is Nemo. His memory has gone, wiped clean by age. But slowly, under hypnosis, fragments of the past begin to emerge.
A Pan- Européenne production, co-produced with Integral Film, Alfred Hürmer – LagoFilm, Marco Mehlitz – Christal Films Productions, Christian Larouche – Toto & Co films, Jaco Van Dormael
