Dark City - Movie Synopsis & Plot
John Murdoch awakens in a strange hotel room, not knowing who he is or how he got there. But people know his name, and he soon learns that he also has a wife... And is wanted for a series of brutal murders. He is pursued by Detective Bumstead but his real fear lies in his other hunters, the so-called Strangers. As he quickly realizes, they are not bound by the state of being that humans are; they can fly, use telekenisis, and change the city to whatever they please.
They are after him for a reason. As a suspicious doctor tells him, he has awakened from their dreamworld, and has the ability to harness the same powers that they do. He is a threat to their already dying race, but his questions still lay unanswered... Why does the whole city fall asleep simulteneously? Why can he never get out of the city? And why is it never daytime?
