The film is set in a futuristic setting involving a battle over control of the mind and of cutting-edge biotechnology. Ex-soldier Ryan Reeve (Noel Clarke) wakes up in the back of a van next to a young boy, Alex (Art Parkinson), who is being held prisoner. He frees the boy and must work out what is happening in bursts of exactly nine minutes and forty-seven seconds, as the control and conscious awareness of his body is repeatedly being hijacked by another person. He teams up with the mysterious "Dana" (Alexis Knapp) as he battles a conspiracy known as "Anomaly" led by Harkin Langham (Ian Somerhalder).
