Plot  Leonard suffers from short-term memory loss - total loss. He desparately tries to overcome this by writing notes, taking polaroid pictures, and, with important information, tattoing himself. He thinks that his mission is to revenge the death of his wife. The words 'John G raped and murdered my wife' are tattoed on his chest. But Leonard is easily manipulated by other people, who twist his actions to serve to their own ends.
