Synopsis

People who experience traumas in their life may unwittingly have urges to act out those same behaviors. Gregory Dex Poindexter is a neuroscientist conducting research on traumatic memories looking for ways to treat or heal them. Under the guise of approved research, Dex discovers that memories can be copied and spread from person-to-person like viruses, implanting secret thoughts into their brains. While trying to manipulate his girlfriend with infectious memories, Dex unknowingly releases a secret power that can destroy far more than one small university biology department. The worst part of it all are words of a child he can t get out of his mind, Momma, the memories are so strong, so real, so alive . . .
