SCOTT SIMON, HOST:
The film “Reminiscence” is set in a Miami of rising waters and scorching heat, where people have now flipped the clock to work at night and sleep by day. Nick, a war vet who’s now a private eye, uses a technology that floats people in a tank, so they can relive cherished memories.
