What is it about?

This is how Miramax describes this film:

In an attempt to end wars and maintain peace, humankind has outlawed the things that trigger emotion: literature, music, and art.

To uphold the law, a special breed of police is assigned to eliminate all transgressors.

But when the top enforcer misses a dose of an emotion-blocking drug, he begins to realize that things are not as they seem.
