Ian Gray is a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the human eye. One day, a strange recurrence of the number 11 leads him to a photograph of a pair of eyes that could subsequently reveal the spiritual truth of the universe. The owner of the eyes is a girl named Sofi who, unlike Ian, believes that she has known him in a past life. Ian tends to avoid any non-scientific interpretation of his feelings but cannot hide the fact that he feels complete with her in his life. The pair fall quickly in love and decide to get married, but in a cruel twist of fate, she tragically and suddenly dies. Depressed and empty, Ian receives a call from his lab mate who reveals an impossible discovery; despite the fact that everyone is meant to have totally distinct eyes, she has found a person in India who shares the same irises as Sofi.
'I, Origins' is a touching, heartbreaking and intense sci-fi drama questioning the truths of the universe. It has been directed and written by Mike Cahill ('Another Earth', 'Boxers and Ballerinas') and it was the winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. It is due for US release on July 18th 2014.
