Mark is also living the same day again and again. It’s like he is Jessica Rothe from Happy Death Day excluding the killing. His life however changes when he realizes that another person, Margaret (Kathryn Newton) is also stuck with him in the time-loop. The two then decide to create a map by following every little that happens with them on the same day. For example, an eagle trying to catch a fish or a person trying to master a piece on the piano.

Mark eventually falls for Margaret, but, things don’t go well as Margaret ‘friendzones’ him. And another boy also adds in the story who takes Margaret away from Mark. The ending? Let’s not give you the spoiler right now. But, trust us, it is worth watching two people falling in love while living the same day.
