The opening of the film the viewer is bombarded with contradictory images, of an adult Nemo in one hopelessly bleak situation after another, then jump to 118 year old Nemo explaining his life. He tells the journalist that by not making any choices in his life all the possibilities were open to him. Nemo continues to describe his life as if every possible out come were equally real, leading the journalist to ask which version was the truth. This story deals with ideas about the nature and singularity of time, as well as chaos and string theory, these are a way to convey the deeper message that making choices is a way to try an control a world there is really no way of controlling.
