John Washington (Mark Strong) is a recently widowed man who can enter people's memories. In the past, John used this ability to help solve criminal cases but, after a stroke during a session that goes wrong, he is left incapacitated for two years and financially ruined; he is a shell of his former self. He still owns the beach house where his wife died but refuses to sell it. Desperate for money, John asks his old superior, Sebastian (Brian Cox), for a new job. The case he receives is that of a brilliant but troubled 16-year-old girl, Anna Greene (Taissa Farmiga), who is on a hunger strike. Her stepfather (Richard Dillane) wants her sent to a mental institution which Anna is adamantly against. John is there to determine whether she is a sociopath, based on something that occurred at her boarding school, or if she is the victim of psychological trauma.
