A time-travel tale of love and murder…

In the summer of 1973, 19-year-old Cassie returns to her home town on the Massachusetts coast after her first year away at college. The next day, her boyfriend, Julian, is implicated in a brutal killing.

Seven years later, a freak occurrence gives Cassie the ability to cast her consciousness back in time to a younger version of herself, allowing her to re-live that earlier time with the benefit of foreknowledge. Convinced of Julian’s innocence, she goes back to witness the murder and the events leading up to it. Afterward, she struggles to find a way to prove what really happened, while the killer stalks her past and present lives, determined to silence her.
