Trapped in a loop that keeps returning him to 1 July, he discovers the existence of a secret group known The Lazarus project – a crack team of agents who prevent global catastrophe by resetting time. George signs on with the colourful group as their latest recruit, but when his wife is killed and his colleagues refuse to reset time to save her, George goes rogue and puts a plan in motion that has the potential to destroy the planet. Propulsive action thriller from Joe Barton (Giri/Haji).
We're working on something very special with Joe Barton.... so stay tuned.
