If love is in the form of a circle and time is fluid, what lines would you cross to be with your soulmate? In this gripping, near-future love story, Nick (Leslie Odom, Jr.) and Janine (Cynthia Erivo) live in marital bliss, until Janine’s ex-husband (Orlando Bloom) warps time to try to tear them apart using Nick’s college girlfriend (Frieda Pinto).

As Nick’s memories and reality disappear, he must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in order to hold onto — or let go of — everything he loves. Can love endure in a future where time is fluid, and all of life may be just an illusion?
