When five bodies arrive in the morgue and ask for her help, Tru's mission is five times more difficult.

Goofs: When Lindsay brings Tru breakfast in bed on the second version of the day, she is excited that Tru remembered her birthday, and she also mentions that nobody else did. But it's still very early in the morning. It's not at all reasonable to assume that anybody forgot her birthday just because they didn't call before 8am.


What if you had the power to change the future, by reliving the past? When Tru Davies takes a job on the graveyard shift at the city morgue, a dead body askes her for help. Instantly, time rewinds to the previous morning and she has just one day to prevent their death.
