A thief, who steals corporate secrets through the use of dream-sharing technology, is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO.
Christopher Nolan's first film since his feature debut, Following (1998), that is a completely original work. All of his films between them are either remakes or based on comics, novels, or short stories.
He was delirious but asked for you by name. Show him...
Japanese Security Guard: He was carrying nothing but this...
Japanese Security Guard: And this...

In nearly every dream sequence, you always have a dreamer and at least one person populating the dream with projections of their sub-conscious (with the exception of Limbo). Yet when we see the series of dream levels being built and everyone talking over the job there are no projections anywhere even though they are in a shared dream.
At the end of the credits Édith Piaf's "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" plays at normal speed, then slows down to the speed it was at the beginning of the film during Hans Zimmer's score and throughout the movie. Then we see the title stop in the center of the screen as the song ends.
