Jake awoke the next day to find time moving backwards a day at a time. He now had the chance to save his family, and in doing so he uncovers and vows to destroy a sinister chain of criminal activity in his home town.If someone had told Jake Hingham two weeks ago that time travel was real he would have laughed in their face.
