synopsis

This is a gripping story about Professor of Quantum Physics, Jacob Matthews, who is faced with this question: How far would you go to change the past?  

After suffering the loss of his murdered wife, Sarah, Jacob's life begin to tailspin out of control. Unable to perform his duties, he's asked to take a leave of absence from his position with the University. Soon after, Jacob locks himself in his home, shut off from the outside world. There, in his solitude, he begins a dangerous and maddening journey to go back and save his beloved Sarah.
