Extended trailer for the film,
Still not sure what the film is about, but it looks epic, but non-commercial film that will probably flop at the cinema but may become a cult classic.
The official synopsis for Cloud Atlas describes the film as
"an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution."[
