Joel Barish and his girlfriend Clementine have had a painful breakup. When Joel learns that a company called Lacuna, Inc. can erase his memories of her and their entire relationship, he jumps at the chance to forget he ever met her. During the procedure, as he literally inhabits his own memories, he realizes that it might be better to live with and learn from his pain than to erase the lessons he has learned as a result.
