  • Married Jim and Linda Hanson and their two adolescent daughters Bridgette and Megan Hanson are a loving family. Immediately after Linda picks up a cryptic and incomplete telephone message from Jim, she receives a visit from a sheriff who informs her that Jim was killed in a car accident the previous day while on a business trip. Devastated, Linda calls her mother Joanne for support, she who stays with Linda and the girls for the night. When Linda awakens the next morning, she finds her mother gone with no evidence of her being there for the night, she, later that day, runs into the sheriff who seems to have no recollection of the two ever having met, and most importantly she finds that Jim is still alive and well with no signs of he being in a car accident. Linda also experiences things that day which are inexplicable to her. Not understanding what is happening, she turns to professional help of various sorts. The subsequent few days, Linda awakens some days to find Jim dead and some days to find Jim still alive. For whatever reason, Linda eventually comes to the understanding that she is living the week out of order, she having no recollection of things that have happened earlier in the week that she has yet to experience, but knowing things that have happened later in the week that she has already lived. That knowledge of the future she finds is a powerful tool in being able to change the events earlier in the week, and which may change the course not only of the car accident but of what she truly comes to realize was their disintegrating marriage as the last day of the week which she will live being the fateful day Jim is supposed to die.
