The series stars Patrick J. Adams as Philip (Combinations, The good thing) and Karine Vanasse as Evelyn (Cardinal, Revenge).

The day when Philip (Adams) discovers the possibility of going back in time, he does not hesitate. Ever since Evelyn (Vanasse), the love of his life and his companion of six years, left him, his life no longer has any meaning. With the enormous power he wields through Plan B, he tries to save his relationship, his law firm, and his dysfunctional family. But Philip quickly realizes that the slightest choice has repercussions on his life and that of others.
