DVD Plot Summary: (Quoted from back of DVD)
A lone time traveller from the year 2035 must solve a riddle that may save his people... But it may also take him to the brink of madness.
Bruce Willis, Madeline Stowe and Brad Pitt star in this brilliant sci-fi masterpiece from Terry Gilliam. After the world's population is devistated by a killer virus, survivors must live in dank underground communities. Cole (Willis) 'volunteers' to travel into the past to obtain a pure virus sample, thereby helping scientists develop a cure. Along the way , he crosses paths with a beautiful psychiatrist (Stowe) and a one-card-short-of-a-full-deck mental patient (Pitt). But the race is on, as Cole searches for the army of the 12 monkeys, a radical group linked to the deadly disease.
With unforgetable performances and imaginative special effects, 12 Monkeys is a modern-day classic laced with Gilliams trademark wit and dazzling visual style.
