The trailer for ARQ reveals a dystopian version of Groundhog Day, with Renton, played by Robbie Amell, waking over and over again at 6.16 a.m., only moments before military bursts through his door and takes him captive. They are after the ARQ, a much “sought-after invention… that could solve the energy crisis that’s tearing the world apart,” according to i09.

Over time, Renton begins to alter events within the time loop that is caused by the ARQ. Everyday he wakes beside Hannah, played by Rachael Taylor. At first she isn’t aware of the time loop. Eventually, though, she wakes up knowing Renton will be shot, just like he has been every day since the movie began, and so she joins Renton in the awareness of the continual time loop.
