Francine Esterro has lived peacefully in the small University town of Bluffington for many years. When she can't reach her long time and close friend in the house across the street she begins to worry. A few weeks pass with still no word of her friend when the house is suddenly sold and a stranger moves in. Francine becomes panicked as her thoughts go to a device that has been kept hidden away and guarded up in the attic of that house; a device that caused her and her friends so much suffering and tragedy many years ago.
The year was nineteen sixty-six. Francine is a young art student sharing the house with three other students. She and the others on a whim decided to explore the attic, where it is rumored a dead man was once found hanging. While searching the attic instead of finding anything to do with the dead man, they stumble across a strange device. After getting a sense that the device is something they should maybe not be touching, they decide to leave it alone, but it is already too late. The next morning they awake to find they have been sent back in time ten years.
As the four attempt to find a way to get back home, tempers flare and personalities soon divide the group. They struggle to work together as a group to find their way home, but not before they send themselves to multiple different periods in time where tradgedy continues to follow them, finally leaving one of them on the brink of death before they make it back to a time they belong.
Francine knows she must seek out the stranger if she has any hope of accessing the device in the attic to ensure the secret of what happened those many years ago remains a secret.
