A man who is forgotten forgets in return, and ends up right back where he started.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - My wife's favorite movie
I have one that I'm not sure if it pushes the boundaries of "poorly describing" or not. I'm gonna post it anyway.
1. A military officer attempts to rescue the woman of his dreams but is thwarted by criminals at every turn.
2. The protagonist manages to secure entry into a secretive facility and discovers that he is to be the secret ingredient to the product's success.
In an attempt to improve this thread I'm going to maybe help show people how to do this properly.
An innocent man goes to jail for a long long time until he escapes via a hole in the wall that he created.
This is just a synopsis. There is nothing misleading here that would confuse anyone who had seen Shawshank and prevent them from knowing what it is. A better way to describe Shawshank for this thread would be to say, "A young man is stuck living a life he knows to be a lie. After living with an older man, who comes to be his best friend, for many years he disappears in the night with a large sum of money. Years later the older man thinks of his friend and remembers something the younger man said. Later the two men reunite on the coast of the Pacific Ocean."
