Synopsis of Blackout’s Plot
‘Blackout’ begins with Ethan McCoy and Nick Nolte (DEA Team Head) searching for John Cain in a burnt-down house. John Cain awakens in a Mexican hospital. Cain has no memory of his past or how he got there. Cain is struggling to remember his identity and meets Anna Cornish (Abbie Cornish), who claims to be his spouse. Eddie, a well-known cartel leader, claims that Cain is his friend. Eddie and Anna attempt to bring back Cain’s memories, but Cain isn’t sure if they are trustworthy.
Soon, Cain is attacked and taken hostage by some goons pretending to be hospital staff. He soon realizes that the hospital has been locked down. With the help of Eddie and Anna, Cain decides that he will escape from the hospital. Eddie threatens Dr. Garza who is caring for Cain to bring back his memories. Cain, however, is hurt in an elevator fight and meets Dr. Garza. Dr. Garza informs Cain that Eddie and his cartel want a case Cain stole. To find the location of the case, they tried to use memory drugs against Cain. Dr. Garza wiped out Cain’s memories to make him useless to the cartel and saved his life.
Anna later reveals to Cain that the CIA had recruited him to steal the case. This case contains highly sensitive information. On the other hand, McCoy leads Cain to believe he is a DEA agent. Cain is unsure of his trustworthiness and must use his brain to survive the dangerous hunt for the case. Flashes also give Cain clues from his past about the case’s location and his relationship with McCoy, Eddie and Anna. It is unclear whether Cain will regain his memories and locate the case from the rest.

Blackout: Can Cain Regain His Memory After The End?
Cain’s memory loss is the key to the movie’s conceit. Cain, a man with a mysterious past, has almost no recollection of his life. Cain can only recall the basic elements of human life but not his identity. Cain is dependent on the people around him to provide answers about his past. Cain learns about the danger to his life and the connection to the missing case. He realizes that he can’t trust anyone. McCoy, Anna, Eddie and Anna give Cain pieces of their pasts to help them search for the missing case.
The story progresses and Cain’s search to find his past becomes intertwined with the hunt for the case. It becomes clear that the case could provide Cain with information about his identity. Cain decides to retrieve the case and end the incontinence of not being able to access his memories. Cain fights the cartel in a dramatic finale to his search. Cain battles Eddie and, despite glimpses of his friendship with Eddie in the past, realizes that he can’t trust him. Cain kills Eddie, but it does not affect his memory.
Anna arrives just at the right moment to save Cain during the climax. Anna’s help sparks a memory from Cain’s past and Cain realizes that they have a special connection. Cain is convinced that Anna can be trusted. Cain eventually loses all of his memories. Cain’s memories were deleted to save his life. It is possible that Cain knew sensitive information. Cain’s memories are not restored. Only the essence of his relationship with Anna is able to be recalled by Cain. However, he is able to recall a small portion of Anna’s story. It makes Cain feel secure and gives him the strength to fight for his life.
Is Cain the One Who Finds the Case? What’s inside it?
During the film’s final scene, Cain becomes preoccupied with Eddie and his men. Anna manages to locate the case. Dr. Garza hid the case in the hospital to save Cain’s life. The doctor also knew that if Cain defeated Eddie and the cartel, it would liberate his hospital from their criminal activities. Therefore, he had carefully concealed the briefcase. Anna was able to find the case only by carefully studying the clues provided to her by Dr. Garza. The contents of the case remain a mystery to Anna until the end.
McCoy’s team reduces Cain and Anna after they defeat the cartel. McCoy arrives in a car with the couple and demands that the case is returned. However, Cain demands to see the case’s contents before he gives it over. McCoy says that the case contains all of the addresses and names of the world’s power brokers. The briefcase also contains the puppeteer’s details, implying that these names belong to an Illuminati-type group. McCoy decides that Cain is to be killed because such sensitive information is too important for one person to keep.
But Anna saves Cain and kills McCoy’s men. Cain and Anna end up keeping the case, but they don’t open the contents. They discover that McCoy wanted to sell the case’s contents on the black market to make some money. The couple foils McCoy’s plan. Cain saves McCoy, probably due to their shared history, which Cain only briefly remembers. The case contains information that could cause chaos around the world. Therefore, the whole purpose of the fight to obtain the case is to restore balance in society. Each of the three main protagonists has their own views on this idea of balance. Cain wins the case and decides to keep it secret to avoid any more conflicts.
