A new Chinese immigrant smokes her last cigarette from home, evoking memories of her last day in Beijing. Back in China, America was her hazy dream of the future. Now settled in America, she realizes that her homeland is becoming a hazy memory of the past. [subtitles]
In a world in which the past, present, and future unfold simultaneously, a woman struggles to preserve her romance with the man she loves. Eva is missing a gene that prevents her from experiencing time in a linear manner; she endures life as a chaotic jumble of past, present, and future, where actions have no consequences, destiny is written in stone, and morality has no relevance.
She desperately tries to avoid a destiny that harms Marcus, the man she loves. Part gritty road movie, part lo-fi science fiction, part love story, Reversion traverses the sprawling landscape of Los Angeles in search of fate, free will, and the nature of morality. While the world of Reversion is decidedly extraordinary, its passionate love story is what makes the film a richly emotional experience. [adult content, language, violence]
