If you can see the future, you can save it.
“Here is the thing about the future. Every time you look at it, it changes because you looked at it, and that changes everything else.”
Gary Goldman (story)
Philip K. Dick (short story)
Cris Johnson has a gift, one which he hides from the world in a double bluff in his main job as Frank Cadillac a table top magician, and uses to supplement his income with low level gambling in Vegas. He can see two minutes into the future, with one exception – a recurring vision of a woman he meets in a diner at 8.09 on an unspecified day. He visits the diner each day, twice a day, until their paths finally cross. When his gift attracts the attention of an FBI agent, he becomes involved in uncovering a suspected terrorist plot and the two stories unfold to reveal the meaning of his vision.
Nicolas Cage’s wife Alice Kim has a small role in the movie as “the girl with the necklace.”
Nicolas Cage negotiated with an Indian Tribe to allow filming for part of the movie on their sacred land, a very remote section at the bottom of the Grand Canyon only accessible by helicopter and only inhabited by the Havasupai people. He had taken Alice Kim there on one of their first dates and been there several times before and had a very personal relationship with this area of outstanding beauty.
