Los Angeles Detective Brett Hopper is stuck repeating the same day, in which he is framed for the murder of the Assistant District Attorney, Alberto Garza. Each day, he attempts to uncover clues to the homicide that has him on the run for his freedom.

Hopper must clear his name, but those close to him get caught in the web of conspiracy that will put their lives in danger.

The days can get complicated with each decision he makes as he tries various tactics to fight or flee the murder allegations.

At least one other individual seems to be repeating the same day as Hopper, but his actions rarely affect Hopper's case unless they happen to be working together on that iteration of the day.

While episodes may start at any time of the day and may contain multiple days or parts of days, Hopper begins each day by waking up at 6:17 a.m. and viewing his clock turn to 6:18 a.m.

Hopper only carries his memories and his body, with any injuries, over into the next repetition of the day. However, injuries sustained to other individuals do not carry over to the next day.

If Hopper makes enough of a difference in one situation, related events are sometimes altered. This generally involves an individual waking up with a sense of apprehension or a newfound perspective concerning the object or relationship that Hopper affected in a previous iteration of the day.

To stop this cycle, solve the mystery and have a normal life, he must find out who framed him.
