Total Recall (1990).
They stole his mind. Now he wants it back. Get ready for the ride of your life.
In 2084, Douglas Quaid is a construction worker on Earth, married to his wife Lori. Fantasizing of traveling to Mars, he visits “Rekall”, a company that can implant memories of a virtual vacation. Quaid opts for a trip to Mars, including the option of being a secret agent and discovering alien technology as part of his virtual experience. When Quaid is sedated and put into the implant machine, the technicians discover he has already undergone a previous memory wipe. Quaid wakes up, frenzied and disoriented, claiming the Rekall technicians have blown his cover. He attacks them in an attempt to escape, but they manage to subdue and sedate him again, wiping the memory of his visit to Rekall and sending him home.
