After he invents a time travel machine, physicist Jim Beale becomes suspicious of the motives of a woman that he meets. He sends himself back 5 days in time to learn more about her and potentially stop her from stealing his invention for an untrustworthy venture capitalist. The device creates a short-lived wormhole to the very recent past through which an object or person can travel. But each trip costs $5,000,000 worth of a radioactive material which only one company on the planet can create. That company is owned and operated by one Klaus Meisner the untrustworthy venture capitalist. He extorts a deal out of physicist Jim Beale in which Beale is to become an employee within his own laboratory.
The mystery woman called Abby admits that she has been working for Klaus Meisner. But as the relationship deepens between her and Beale her loyalty shifts to the lonely physicist. Jim Beale finds himself becoming obsessed with Abby and is willing to give up everything to be with her. He discovers that each excursion into the past places him in a different parallel universe. He hopes to find happiness within one of these parallel worlds with a woman he does not wish to lose. But there is a complication involving the laws of space-time which makes his efforts seem totally futile. Failing to solve the twin-Beale paradox would lead to an exceedingly truncated timeline for Jim.
