The movie follows the story of Jack Starks (Adrien Brody), an American soldier who is wounded in the Gulf War and left with amnesia. After being accused of murder and sentenced to death, Jack finds himself in a mental asylum without any memory of what happened. While undergoing experimental treatment, Jack is put into a straight jacket and locked up in a morgue drawer. However, Jack soon realizes that his jacket has a unique quality - it allows him to travel through time.
