Here’s a brief synopsis via Indiewire,

Titled “Reversion,” and categorized as a sci-fi/thriller, the film stars Aja Naomi King (“How to Get Away with Murder”) as Sophie Clé, “a delighted user of the Oubli, a wisp of high-tech jewelry that wraps behind the ear and uses neuroscience to help its users experience their most joyful memories as if they were happening for the first time. In addition to being the head of marketing for the company that makes this revolutionary memory-enhancing wearable device, she is also the daughter of its inventor, Jack Clé (Colm Feore). Sophie’s most joyful memory is the last day she saw her mother alive, fifteen years earlier. But on the eve of the Oubli’s worldwide launch, a stranger named Isa (Jeanette Samano) kidnaps Sophie, setting off a chain of events that remind us all, you can’t escape what you can’t forget.”

The film opens in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago on October 9th, and more dates will open up across the country shortly thereafter.
