In a post-pandemic world where memories are bought instead of made, John and his wife Julia spend their evenings engrossed in experiencing other people’s memories – allowing the memories' vibrancy to give life to a dull existence. One day John goes to pick up a memory from the global conglomerate, MemCorp, only to find that all the memories are sold out. He returns home empty-handed and he and Julia find themselves painfully aware of the dull nature of their existence. Through a series of humorous events Julia and John find joy in their reality and realize that living other people’s memories had prevented them from making their own.
