People do not typically live past the age of 25, especially the poor who can't afford to 'buy time.' When Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) is accused of killing a man and stealing his time, he is forced to go on the run as he tries to save the world from the corrupt system. Along the way, he kidnaps Sylvia Weis (Amanda Seyfried) hostage. Weis' father, Phillippe Weis, is the richest man alive, and he spares to expense to try and apprehend Will, with help from "timekeeper" cop Raymond Leon (Cillian Murphy).

Henry: "How old are you? In real time?"
Will: "28."
Henry: "I'm 105. Does it show? The day comes when you've had enough. Your mind can be spent even if your body's not."
Will: "That's your problem? You've been alive too long? Have you ever known anyone who's died?"
Henry: "For a few to be immortal, many must die."
Will: "What the hell is that supposed to mean?"
Henry: "You really don't know, do you? Everyone can't live forever, where would we put them? Why do you think there are time zones? Why to you think taxes and prices go up the same day in the ghetto? The cost of living keeps rising to make sure people keep dying. How else could there be men with a million years almost from day to day? The truth is, there's more than enough. No one has to die before their time. If you had as much time as I have, what would you do with it?"
Will: "If I had all that time, I sure as hell wouldn't waste it."

When Will meets Henry Hamilton (Matt Bomer), little does he know how fateful their conversation will be. Hamilton later kills himself, giving Will his extra time (another 100 years). Will is then suspected of Henry's murder.
