SynopsisJamie Bartels arrives home from America to celebrate his 21st birthday. He finds his father, Jack smartly dressed. He tells Jamie he is dead and that time has slipped back one week.. A series of incidents have occurred which culminates in his murder, by his wife and the death of a female friend in the bedroom. As the plot thickens, Jack takes Jamie through several situations, which Jamie can stop happening if he will take Jack's place at a crucial moment. Time is running out as Jamie tries to grasp what the hell is going on. As a prize, Jamie is promised a permanent reunion with his dead girlfriend who froze to death in a walk-in freezer during a dirty weekend with Jamie some months earlier. As the crucial moment comes and passes, all hell breaks loose in the Bartel's household. Will Jamie get his prize and will history repeat itself as real time is restored.
