Dr. Samuel Beckett is a quantum physicist who postulated the theory of time traveling within one's own lifespan. Due to an accident with his quantum accelerator, he now finds uncontrollably "leaping" from life to life throughout history.
Sam bodily leaps into a person at a critical juncture point of their history, displacing their consciousness with his own and temporarily assuming their identity and life. The only way for him to leap out is to change their future history for the better.
His only companion is his friend, Al Calavicci who is neurologically linked to Sam and is projected as an intangible and invisible hologram that only Sam can see and hear and tries to provide Sam with the future data that he needs to change his new persona's history.
And so, Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping randomly throughout time and eras, struggling to alter history in the hopes that his next leap will be the leap home.
