The complex tale is split into three different time periods, beginning in the 16th century, when a conquistador named Tomas stives to find the Tree of Life. The second part of the story finds Jacman playing a Buddha-like character who zips through outer space and dreams of a woman named Izzi. And the third part, which consumes most of the film's screen time, is set in the present day and sees Jackamn playing a doctor named Tommy, who is married to the terminally ill Izzi. In the third section Tommy strives to find a cure for Izzi's brain tumor, and makes some progress after experimenting on a monkey with a substance discovered in a tree in South America. Meanwhile, Izzi has been writing a book that she calls THE FOUNTAIN but has left the final chapter for Tommy to write.
