Synopsis

Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage) et son frère Vitali (Jared Leto) sont nés dans l'Ukraine soviétique durant la Guerre froide. Leurs parents émigrent à cette époque aux États-Unis en se faisant passer pour des juifs persécutés. Rapidement, Yuri se fait une place dans le trafic d'armes en commençant à vendre à des petits acheteurs dans le quartier dans lequel il a grandi, Little Odessa à Brooklyn. Il ne se préoccupe pas de l'idéologie de ses clients, ce n'est pas son affaire (« Ce n'est pas notre guerre »). Tant que des personnes veulent et peuvent acheter des armes, Yuri répond présent.

In "the not-too-distant future", eugenics is common. A genetic registry database uses biometrics to classify those so created as "valids" while those conceived by traditional means and more susceptible to genetic disorders are known as "in-valids". Genetic discrimination is illegal, but in practice genotype profiling is used to identify valids to qualify for professional employment while in-valids are relegated to menial jobs.

In 2169, people are born genetically engineered with a digital clock on their forearm. When they turn 25 years old, they stop aging and their clock begins counting down from one year; when it reaches zero, that person "times out" and dies. Time has become the universal currency; it is used to pay for daily expenses and can be transferred between people or capsules. The country has been divided into "time zones" based on the wealth of the population. The film focuses on two specific zones: Dayton - a poor manufacturing area where people generally have 24 hours or less on their clock at any given time - and New Greenwich - the wealthiest time zone, where people have enough time on their clock to live for centuries.
