Teddy wakes up the morning after his wedding and discovers that every few minutes he's jumping forward to the next year of his life.

Serial procrastinator Teddy thinks he has all the time in the world, but after an odd encounter with a stranger, he wakes up the morning after his wedding to discover that he's jumped forward a year in his life to his first anniversary. His wife Leanne is now heavily pregnant, with a full year of marriage behind them that he doesn’t remember living. Trapped in a cycle of time jumps, transported another year ahead every few minutes, Teddy is faced with a race against time as his life crumbles around him. With time quickly flashing by before his eyes, he begins to see what a mess he has made of life and how self-centred he is becoming. With the help of his best friend Sam, Teddy tries to piece together where it all went wrong and, as his life flashes before his eyes, Teddy must learn how to live life in the precious moments to win back the woman he loves before it’s too late, even if it’s just for a second.
