Synopsis / Plot
A man wanders out of the desert not knowing who he is. His brother finds him, and helps to pull his memory back of the life he led before he walked out on his wife and son four years before. As his memory returns, he makes contact with various people from his past. Wim Wenders's 'Paris, Texas' tells the haunting story of an amnesiac (Harry Dean Stanton) and his struggle to rebuild his shattered life.
