Do you know much about fables and/or films?
In the science fiction film Paycheck with Ben Affleck, he discovers that ‘worthless’ objects given to him by his future self turn out to be incredibly useful at certain points in the film as it unfolds. What myth or fable or other film has a character who is given something that appears useless at first but later in the film turns out to be life-saving?
