Set in Montreal, the psychological drama follows a man on a desperate and relentless quest to save his relationship – and by extension, his whole world. The day Philip (Adams) discovers the possibility of returning in time; he does not hesitate. Since Evelyn (Vanasse), the love of his life and companion for the past six years, has left him, his life has lost its meaning. With the tremendous power he wields thanks to Plan B, he attempts to save his relationship, law firm, and dysfunctional family. But Philip soon realizes that even the smallest choice has repercussions – as uncontrollable as they are unexpected – on his life and the lives of others.
