He must protect it from a gang of mysterious masked intruders who’ve surrounded the house he’s in. The catch? The technology has created a time loop that condemns him and his friends all to relive the same day over and over.

Mason Novick, John Finemore, Kyle Franke and Nick Spicer are producing and filming begins this winter in Toronto. Netflix will have exclusive worldwide rights to the film.
