Story intro

The movie starts with Jack Radcliff (David Oyelowo), a homicide detective, getting a call from his niece Ashley (Storm Reid). Ashley's father Garret (Brian Tyree Henry) has forgotten to collect her from the cinema. Ashley has a strong dislike for her father Garret due to his bipolar disorder and past years of drug abuse. Ashley urges Jack to intervene on her behalf and have a word with her father. The next day he receives a phone call from Ashley that comments on how Garret "got an ear-full" from Jack and everything appears to be great. However, a few hours later Jack receives a garbled call from Ashley that indicates that she is in trouble. Jack races to Ashley's home to find Garrett, Ashely's mother and Ashley murdered. Garrett is found with a bullet wound to the head and container full of cocaine beside him. It appears to be a murder suicide. Jack blames himself, thinking that his chastising of Garret sparked this murder-suicide. Two weeks later, he receives a phone call from Ashley's phone. Jack calls it back but the number is disconnected. He receives a further call and realises that he somehow can communicate with Ashley in the past. Jack decides to investigate the murder and try and save Ashley. He decides to covertly help her re-arrange events in her life in the hope of preventing the murder-suicide. It quickly becomes apparent that Garret was not responsible for the attack and in fact, he was a victim along with his family. With the help of Ashley, Jack and his partner Bobby, a fellow homicide detective, 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 appear to have finally caught up with him.
