They stole his mind: now he wants it back!

In a futuristic world, construction worker Doug Quaid obsesses about taking a vacation on the planet Mars. His wife objects, so Doug instead opts to have an artificial memory of a Martian holiday implanted into his mind. The trouble is, during the implantation procedure, Quaid suffers a strange reaction. Why? It seems as though he has already been to Mars, but his memories of his journey have been wiped...

Now secret agents and the cohorts of a megalomaniacal industrialist are out to get him. Can Quaid experience total recall, and finally figure out just why everyone is trying to stop him from reaching the red planet?
