On the eve of Valentine’s Day in 2004, when Joel carefully prepared a gift and found Clementine to apologize for a quarrel not long ago, he was surprised to find that Clementine didn’t remember him at all. The originally impulsive Clementine couldn’t bear the pain of the quarrel between the two of them, so she went to the “Forgiveness Clinic” to delete all the memories about Joel.

He found that the time spent with Christine, whether it was painful or sweet, was precious, and he didn’t want to forget this beloved one. woman. However, once the program is started, it cannot be reversed. Joel can only try his best to hide Christine in the deepest place of memory, those corners of time where Christine has never appeared in reality, so as to preserve this love…
