Tyler is a high school student who has only one thing in mind: geohunting (GPS-assisted treasure hunt). One day, while engrossed in a hunt during summer vacation, he and his friends find themselves embroiled in a mysterious phenomenon.
Fantasy and real life intertwine. Is it the past or the present? Is this reality… or madness?
Sucked into an anomaly known as the Time Spiral, Tyler and his friends are forced to relive the same day over and over again.
They soon encounter others stuck in the same cycle. With the leader Simon and the mysterious Mia, this group is called the Loopers.
Will Tyler and the others find a way out, or are they doomed to stay in this endless loop forever?
