Who said circadian rhythms were boring? There is a film... sort of

I was browsing the Internet after a tiring afternoon of RNA extraction from a circadian time course, when I came across with something that caught my eye.

There is a movie actually entitled "Circadian Rhythm"!

Will it tell the story (a documentary maybe) of a young and handsome Latin American scientist who works hard to study the molecular mechanisms underlying these fascinating oscillations?

Or maybe the movie is a thriller, in which problems arise with a period of 24 hours and the hero has limited time to save the world.

Here's the trailer and synopsis:

Sarah L. Caul (Rachel Miner) is 24 years old, attractive, skilled in martial arts and hyper-intelligent. The only problem is that she has no idea who she is, where she is from or how in the world she wound up in a white infinity room, in the middle of nowhere. Caught in a mind-bending web of high-tech murder and espionage, she soon realizes that what she holds could expose the U.S. Governments darkest secrets, and that the assassins that pursue her will do everything they can to make sure those secrets die with her. Can she find the truth before it’s too late, or will the visions of a past she never knew ultimately destroy her?

Ok, so it has absolutely nothing to do with the daily rhythms in gene expression, physiology and behavior that are present in most organisms, but still: the subject of my research made it into a movie title :)
