Age Rating:

After her fiancé is murdered by his disturbed ex-girlfriend, a woman spirals back in time to before they met and must steer him away from the girl that will one day seal his fateful future.

Beautiful Sondra Folston seems to have a nicely-secured future in front of her—a loving fiancé, supportive friends and a wealthy family. But it isn’t her future she needs to write, for on this night—the night of her elegant and lavish engagement party—the stars of time will set into motion her true destiny… a destiny that instead lies in the past. And that past is her fiancé Drake’s ex-girlfriend Danielle, showing up to the event unannounced with much darker intentions for the couple’s happiness. Unbalanced and mentally-disturbed for years, Danielle’s solution lies solely in the chamber of the gun she has armed her emotions with, and despite valid attempts by the targets to coax her otherwise, she unloads her misguided passion into Drake, leaving him lifeless in Sondra’s hysterical arms before Danielle turns her weapon of hopelessness on herself. Left abandoned by a future that no longer holds any meaning, Sondra soon spirals into an aimless depression that not even best friends Micki and Fulton can supply help to. So Sondra does the only thing left to ease the desolation by getting into her car without buckling the seat belt and heading at high-speed straight for a brick wall—only fate steers her back in a different direction… a world that for all she can deduce is nine years younger. A time and place before she ever knew the loving embrace of Drake, who currently prepares for his high school senior prom with the one girl who could terrify Sondra down to her bones—Danielle. Making her presence irrevocably known, Sondra immediately and irrationally spills the truth of time, love and death to Drake, who can only perceive the stranger’s sudden arrival as preposterous and impractical. But this beautiful and persistent mystery woman seems to know things about him—things nobody else could possibly know. Things about that current timeframe before they even dare to happen. And the more she divulges, the more a skeptical Drake begins to reluctantly accept her credibility with an unexplained flow of feelings toward her she can only advocate as destined true love—a union of souls that have now traversed time and space like unstoppable magnets to find each other again. Using that notion to fuel the engine she believes powers their situation, Sondra can only trust that her true purpose of existence is to now help guide and steer Drake away from the budding and promising relationship with the young, innocent girl who will one day get him killed. But with that tremendous power of responsibility may come a frightening realization—as the star-crossed lovers throw science and practicality into the scenario by raising the possibility that successfully changing their past to save their future may also be dooming a hopeful chance of any future together at all, for if Drake never dates and leaves Danielle then how could he possibly be led to eventually meet Sondra? Stuck in a torturous, bittersweet past with the love of her life she can’t even reasonably touch, Sondra must encompass her gifted second chance by protecting Drake and steering his course differently before her time runs out and she loses him all over again—because sometimes destiny can’t wait.
