Evan Treborn is a seemingly ordinary young man growing up in a small town, but he suffers from blackouts throughout his childhood. His friends and family are doubtful whether these blackouts are actually happening, attributing Evan's accounts to an overactive imagination. However, when he gets older, he discovers that the reason for these blackouts is that he was traveling back in time during those periods. He finds detailed journals that describe what happened to him during those times. Evan realizes that he can change his future by altering tiny details from his past. However, it is impossible to know all of the consequences that even a miniscule action can have, so changing the future is a very dangerous business that may best be left alone.
