Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, best in the field of dangerous arts of extraction, that is to steal intelligence and precious secrets from people’s subconscious while they dream, when their mind is the most vulnerable.
Cobb’s rarity has given him a highly sought-after professional status, of immeasurable value in the complicated world of technological espionage, but at the same time has made him lose everything that was more important to him and turned him into an international fugitive . Now he is given a chance to regain everything he has lost: a last mission could replicate his life if he does something impossible, the opposite of extracting information: implanting them into someone’s mind.
But a dangerous enemy follows every move of Cobb and his team in order to prevent them from carrying out their mission. And Cobb is the only one who could have anticipated this.
