According to the Netflix logline, “A time-travelling pilot teams up with his younger self and his late father to come to terms with his past while saving the future.”
Adam Reed, 13, is still grieving his father's death a year ago when he wanders into his garage one night and discovers an injured pilot sheltering there. The enigmatic pilot turns out to be an elder version of himself from a time when time travel was yet in its infancy. He has put everything on the line to return for a secret mission. Together, they must travel back in time to locate their father, right the wrongs, and rescue the world. Working together, the two Adams, young and old, come to grips with their father's death and have an opportunity to heal the wounds that have molded them. Adding to the mission's difficulty, the two Adams learn they don't get along very well, and if they're going to rescue the world, they'll have to figure out how to get along first.
