Elin and Tobias are a happily married couple who regularly vacation with their young daughter. The family is on a dreamy holiday when an innocuous case of food poisoning derails their plans and forever alters the course of their lives.

Three years later, the once loving couple is on the road again to go camping, looking for one last chance to go back to the way things used to be. But what once was is lost, and our characters instead find themselves having to relive the same nightmarish events, as that day and the horrors it brings repeat themselves infinitely.

Together, they must overcome their trauma, reconcile with their past and fight for their lives. Over, and over, and over again.

After thoughtful reassessment of the coronavirus and risks associated with having many attendees who are coursing through international hubs, ultimately to intersect with family, friends, and the general public, our family has made the concerned decision to postpone the memorial service for our mother, Ja'Net DuBois.
We understand this announcement will grieve many who wish to honor her and pay tribute to her body of work on the stage, in film, in television, and behind the scenes.
We would like especially to recognize any of you who made changes to your schedule to be with us. We do not want to put anyone at unnecessary risk and hope all will understand and agree with our decision.
