In the film In Time, several characters mention a number of times about being immortal & how they can only die through accidents (I think). What are the limitations of that immortality? By that I mean, when the Timekeeper Raymond "Ray" Leon (Cillian Murphy) gets shot in the arm, does that injury heal at normal human speed or does it heal instantly or superhumanly fast (like Wolverine or like the Immortals from Highlander)?
There is a scene in the film in which the love interest's father explains that "barring accident or violence" the elite are effectively immortal. This implies that there is still the need for hospitals/ doctors to treat injuries, but that ageing and disease has been eliminated. So Cillian Murphy's character will not have the bullet wound heal any faster than it would without the time-currency.
Everyone lives there until he (or she) dies because of murder or decease, etc or until his/her clock runs out of time. When someone dies with some time left, his/ her clock stops and digits on it are greyed out, he dies as a normal person dies. The time from it can't be taken (or recorded) anymore.
