Zev (Christopher Plummer) lives in a care home and is beginning to suffer from dementia. His memories are growing weaker by the day. For this reason, his old friend Max (Martin Landau) urges him to hurry up and finally carry out the plan he's been carrying around with him for 70 years: to take revenge on the man who has Zev's family on his conscience. The man, a former concentration camp guard, is living under a false name in North America. With the travel route painstakingly planned by Max in his luggage, Zev sets off on a trip through the USA and Canada. He wants to kill the man who murdered his family with his own hands – just as long as he can remember the aim of his mission. Remember is a brilliantly constructed thriller.
