Bradley Cooper (Limitless) stars as Rory Jansen, a young literary hopeful who risks it all to become a success. While on their honeymoon in Paris, Rory and his wife Dora, played by Zoë Saldana (Colombiana), step inside an antique shop where they find a briefcase that will later reveal the key to the career he has always desired… but the find comes with a steep price.  This dramatic story within a story exposes the strong effects that life’s choices can have on us all.

The consequences may just affect the legacy of himself as well as those closest to him.  Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes and Zoë Saldana star in this romantic thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end.
