Thomas J. Veil is a photojournalist living in Evanston, Illinois. During a quiet dinner with his wife Alyson (Megan Gallagher), Veil goes to the bathroom for a smoke. When he returns, his wife is gone and the maitre d' no longer recognizes him. Veil tries to find a safe place to stay, only to find his home occupied by another man, his bank account inaccessible and his best friend dead. He begins to unravel as he discovers that his wife is a part of whatever is happening to him. After being confined to Calaway Psychiatric Hospital, he is placed in the care of a Dr. Walter Bellamy (Michael Tucker), who may or may not be trying to help him get better. As he commiserates with fellow patient Eddie Powers (Ted Levine), who mysteriously seems to understand what Veil is going through, Veil begins to realize that his former life has been erased by a shadowy conspiracy and that his troubles are tied to a photograph he took entitled "Hidden Agenda".
