Plot: Douglas Quaid has a stable job and a loving wife, but upon learning that a company called Rekall could grant him the memory of the ultimate adventure, Douglas decides to try it out. In the midst of having the memories implanted, something goes terribly wrong. As the authorities close in, Douglas joins forces with a rebel soldier on a mission to track down the head of the resistance, and take down a power-crazed leader who seeks to control the entire free world. The harder Douglas fights, however, the more difficult it becomes for him to determine whether this is real life, or simply all part of the complex Rekall program.
