Synopsis / Plot
Legendary director Francis Ford Coppola returns to the director's chair after a ten-year hiatus with this adaptation of Romanian author Mircea Eliade's tome detailing the arduous journey of a professor whose life is thrown into chaos as World War II looms ominously on the horizon. When the 70-year-old scholar is struck by lightning, his age begins to reverse as his mind grows infinitely more brilliant. Now determined to understand the origins of language and consciousness, the fugitive professor leads authorities on a wild chase through Romania, Switzerland, Malta, and India.

"I was excited to discover in this tale by Eliade, the key themes that I most hope to understand better: Time, consciousness and the dream- like basis of reality,” said Coppola. “For me it is indeed a return to the ambitions I had for my work in cinema as a student."
