The film starts out in 2047, in a gangland of the future with 25 year old ‘professional’ killer Joseph Simmons, who works as a ‘Looper,’ an agent that is tasked with hunting agents that are sent from the year 2077. However, Simmons is faced with quite a conundrum when he finds that the latest target he is tasked with killing is actually Simmons himself back from the future.

As this is a time travel film, we get to see lead character Joseph Simmons in two different points in his life.
