But when the old friend wants more from Rebecca than friendship, it puts a strain on her fragile relationship with Tristan. The messenger has plenty on his mind already as he befriends a graduate student in psychology who believes she has a medical explanation for his constant string of assignments.
Tristan finds himself plagued with questions: Is he insane? Is he being manipulated? Is he part of a larger plan that he can't see? And is he alone in his ability to see future disaster and his compulsion to warn the victims? All this conflicting information is enough to set the messenger adrift in his own thoughts.
