Mason Stark lost his wife a year ago when she was shot by a mugger and he's now lost his job. He isn't too receptive to a colleague's suggestion that he get psychiatric help and locks himself in his office. He retrieves a gun from his desk drawer but suddenly finds himself transported to a hospital or prison where he sees other versions of himself locked away. Another version of himself tells him he's in an alternate reality where he can change the decisions he's made in life. He's asked to hunt down another extremely violent version of himself and stop him before he kills....again. Mason soon realizes that the choices he makes in this new world also have their own impact.
