Plot so far
Plot So Far…

  • Cobb and business partner Arthur perform corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of their targets and extracting info through shared dreaming

  • Dreamers are awaken by a “kick" such as dying in the dream or falling or being dunked in water

    • If the dreamer is the one who awakens, the dream "collapses”

  • Saito, thought to be the latest target, reveals that he was actually auditioning the team to perform the difficult act of "inception": planting an idea in a person's subconscious

  • Saito wants to break up the empire of businessman Maurice Fischer by putting the idea in his son’s head, Robert Fischer

  • If Cobb succeeds, Saito would use his influence to clear a murder charge against Cobb, so he can return to the United States and his children


Plot so far1
Plot So Far…

  • Maurice Fischer dies and his body is flown back to Los Angeles, the team share the flight with Robert Fischer, where Cobb then sedates him

  • In the first level, Yusuf's dream, the team abducts Fischer

    • Fischer's trained subconscious projections attack, wounding Saito severely

    • Eames temporarily takes the appearance of Fischer's godfather, Peter Browning, to suggest Fischer reconsider his father's will

  • Due to the effects of heavy sedation and multi-layered dreaming, death during this mission will result in entering Limbo

  • Cobb reveals to Ariadne that he spent "50 years" with Mal in Limbo constructing a world from their shared memories while seemingly growing old together

  • They return to reality and find less than three hours had passed, but Mal, convinced she was still dreaming, committed suicide, all the while trying to persuade Cobb to do so by incriminating him in her death

  • Yusuf drives the team in a van as they are sedated into the second level, a hotel dreamt by Arthur


Plot so far2
Plot So Far…

  • Saito dies and is sent to Limbo

  • Cobb's projection of Mal sabotages the plan by killing Fischer

  • Cobb confronts his projection of Mal and confesses guilt for her suicide: using inception to plant the idea in her mind that the world they had been living in for 50 years was not real, Cobb had convinced her to leave Limbo with him through suicide, but once back in the real world, she was unable to discern dreaming from reality

  • Ariadne pushes Fischer off a balcony, resuscitating him at the mountain fortress, where he enters a safe room to discover and accept the planted idea: that his father wishes him to be his "own man”

  • All team members other than Cobb and Saito ride the synchronized kicks back to reality
