A quantum physicist from the future, Dr. Sam Beckett, finds himself lost in a time travel experiment gone wrong. With each leap through time, he is faced with an ethical problem to solve for a specific person, who he takes over the actions for. Sam’s main objective is to return home, and with the help of his senior officer Al Calavicci (who appears to Sam as a hologram) he navigates through each leap with the help of Ziggy (the project’s hybrid computer). Ziggy provides Sam and Al with the projected purpose of their visit and thus guides them to the required outcome to allow Sam to leap out of the current scenario.
