Story intro

The movie starts with Jack Radcliff, a homicide detective, picking up his niece Ashley from a theater after her parents had forgotten. It is shown that she has a strong dislike for her father Garret due to his bipolar disorder and past years of drug abuse. Jack then convinces his brother to straighten up, however, the next day he receives a phone call from Ashley that comments on how Garret "got an ear-full" from Jack, however, a few hours later she calls again begging for help. Jack races to their home to find his entire family dead, but he finds his brother in his bedroom with a box full of cocaine beside him, having apparently killed his wife, Ashley, and himself in a rage. Ashley is shown dead in the bathroom, hiding in the shower having apparently been shot by her father in his suicidal rage. Jack blames himself, thinking that his chastising of Garret sparked this murder-suicide. Two weeks later, he receives a phone call, but from Ashley, who is still alive. It is soon revealed that she is calling him from the past. Jack realizes that changing events in her timeline, changes his own, which re-writes the past. Jack decides to covertly help her re-arrange events in her life in the hope of preventing the murder-suicide. Without frightening her, by not letting Ashley know about the murder, but it quickly becomes apparent that Garret was not responsible for the attack and in fact, he was a victim of the murder along with his family. Jack and his partner, another homicide detective named Bobby, begin to uncover evidence of an underground network of drug dealing cops working for an unknown figure called "Georgie". Garret's old connections to the drug underworld finally catches up with him, leading Georgie to collect some old debts and kill Garret and his family.
