The Forgotten tells the story of Telly Paretta, portrayed by Julianne Moore, a grieving mother who lost her nine-year-old son, Sam, in a plane crash over fourteen months ago. Since then, she has been experiencing nightmares and vivid hallucinations of Sam's presence. However, she was unable to find comfort in her husband, Jim (played by Anthony Edwards), who insisted that they never had a son.

One day Telly discovered that she is not alone in her experience. She meets Ash Correll, portrayed by Dominic West, who claims to have lost his daughter in the same plane crash that killed Telly's son. She also stumbles upon a support group comprising the families of the other victims of the crash. Telly finds that every member of the group is struggling to recall their loved ones' memory.

The plot thickens when Telly encounters Agent Al Pollack, portrayed by Gary Sinise, a mysterious government operative who claims that he is investigating a conspiracy surrounding the passengers' deaths in the plane crash. Agent Pollack insists that there never was a plane crash, and Telly's son Sam never existed. He claims that Telly's memories are false and delusional symbols of her inability to cope with the loss of her unborn child.

As Telly continues to investigate the mystery surrounding the disappearance of her son, she slowly uncovers a sinister plot that suggests her memories might not be delusional after all. Agent Pollack's revelations exposed a terrifying truth that put Telly's life and sanity on the line.
