After sometime we see a young man entering a bar where our main character uptil now is the bartender. they have a chat and the man tells the bartender all about the hardships he faced in his life and how one guy totally ruined his entire life.

The bartender takes the man into the past to the day when he referred his life was ruined. He asks the man to find his younger self and stop his life from getting ruined. Some moments later we find out that it was the man himself who ruined his own life by going to his past self when he was a girl and finds out that the bartender is his future self and he had to come to keep the loop of his existence going.
The bartender who also works for this time travelling agency has the responsibility to stop a criminal called the Fizzle Bomber who bombs places and kills huge number of people. in the end he finds out that his future self is the fizzle bomber and he goes to the future and kills him (his future self)
This film is so full of suspense that the viewer must watch it until the end. There are some situations where the viewer has no idea of what’s going on in the film.
At the end of the movie if you put your mind to it, you will have a question and that is “How is Jane even born in the first place?”
