A man with painful, forgotten memories of his past discovers an ability to alter said memories, leading to unintended consequences for himself and others.

ABSTRACT
Twenty-year old college student Evan Treborn is, to put things lightly, a damaged man, inhibited in his day-to-day life by memories ranging from abuse at the hands of his since-institutionalized father to seeing his dog burned alive by a sadistic next-door neighbor. One day in his dorm room, Evan discovers the ability to travel back in time through reading an old diary containing some of his worst memories, sending himself down a complicated -- and violent -- road as he begins to jump back into the past with the well-intentioned but ultimately-doomed goal of bettering his existence through "do-overs" of terrifying ordeals.
