Episode 1 – 4 Synopsis:

George is an ordinary man leading an ordinary life. Then one morning, he wakes up and discovers the impossible has happened. Time has turned back and undone the events of the past six months. George is convinced that he’s lost his mind until he is approached by the Lazarus Project, a secret organization who have harnessed the ability to turn back time. George must decide whether working alongside Lazarus for “the greater good” is worth risking all he’s ever known and loved. After a freak accident harms someone close to George, he is left distraught. He can’t stop himself from asking – if he is working with an organization that can turn back time, why can’t they undo what has happened and help the person he loves? He turns to his colleague and close friend Archie, who reveals the dangers of resetting time and how it almost destroyed her life.

And following a personal loss, George decides to stop mourning and take action instead. And if his colleagues at the Lazarus Project won’t help him, George will need to find support elsewhere – even if that means appealing to Lazarus’ sworn enemies. George is determined to reset time to regain the person he loves – but the only way to do so is by causing a global catastrophe. With Rebrov’s help, George decides to follow his heart and set out on a morally dubious mission of destruction. But he doesn’t know that his colleague Shiv, a diehard Lazarus loyalist, is onto him… and he will do anything to stop George.
