The next morning, Jen, a lawyer, is ready to spring into action, setting out to get her son released from jail. Except that somehow, it’s not the day after the murder, it’s the day before. Desperately, Jen begins scrambling, trying to find a way to stop the murder from happening, while also trying to figure out how she woke up yesterday. Jen continues to wake up in the past, gradually moving to days, months and years, and each time she wakes up, she’s pointed in a direction that brings her one step closer to solving the mystery of what happened that night.
