Traumatized ex-soldier Reeve (Clarke) wakes up in the back of a moving van alongside a young
boy (Parkinson) held prisoner. But after helping the boy escape, he comes to the terrifying
conclusion that he’s the kidnapper. Even more startling, five years have passed since he was last
awake. Ryan soon learns that he’s caught up in a futuristic conspiracy known as “Anomaly,”
Ryan’s only connection with reality is the dogged pursuit of Ryan by the elegant but sinister
Harkin Langham (Somerhalder), who –when he’s not trying to kill Ryan – explains how to
survive his blackouts, lasting exactly 9 minutes and 47 seconds.

center. With Harkin dogging and thwarting his every turn, Ryan must summon all his will to
challenge his programmed destiny and regain his humanity.
