The Bumblebee Flies Anyway
(2000)

Elijah Woods wakes up in a hospital with amnesia and begins to remember that he was in a car crash.  What he doesn't know is that he is a cancer patient in project Bumblebee.  Bumblebees should not be able to fly, but fly anyway, because their minds tell them otherwise.

The experiment is designed to use hypnotically induced amnesia to cure the cancer with the power of his mind.  His Doctor, Janeane Garofalo, has doubts about the morality of erasing your memories to regain your health. 

Elijah falls in love with a patient's sister, Rachel Leigh Cook, and things look good.  Then, by accident, Elijah discovers a set-up with a red convertible and a projector screen that provided the false memory that helps block his real memories. 

Now that he knows the truth, his cancer comes back.  He must then decide whether to lose all his memories, old and new, or die with his mind intact. 

Elijah Woods chooses life, but there is a chance that Rachel may someday help him regain his past.
