A young woman wakes up in a mysterious wintry woods and finds a strange decaying building. She looks out the door and sees an identical woman dressed in black approach. Startled, the girl rushes up the stairs and finds a chess set. She picks up an oddly-shaped chess piece and a flash of white light consumes the space. The young woman, now dressed in black, wakes up in the woods again, approaches the decaying building and sees herself dressed in white run up the stairs. She enters the building and looks out the door and sees her double dressed in white slowly approach the building. The girl runs up the stairs again and finds the chess set with the pieces now moved. The room flashes white. The young woman, dressed in white again, awakes in the woods, approaches the building, and enters. She goes upstairs and and uses the strange chess piece to win the game and end the time loop.
