The 9th Life of Louis Drax

A mystery beyond reality.


The 9th Life of Louis Drax
After surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, Louis Drax plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday. While police investigate the cause of this near-fatal fall and the whereabouts of his violent father, an acclaimed neurologist uses unorthodox techniques to try to tap into the boy’s unconscious mind and reveal the truth about the events that led to his condition. But as he’s drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of the boy’s seeming ability to cheat death, the doctor finds himself falling for the boy’s mother. As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.
