TIME REGAINED is a unique psychological drama loosely based on Mercel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past. Proust lies on his deathbed looking through old photos and remembering his life. Fact and fiction blend as the viewer is transported into a Proustian world where the past is more vivid than the present.
