The movie didn’t stop at bagging Academy Awards only but grabbed many other prestigious awards.
The synopsis of the story tells us about a thief who steals corporate secrets through dream-sharing technology. He is given a task of planting the idea into the mind of a CEO. It is quiet challenging for him to do inverse of what he is doing already.
