"Theorizing that one could time travel within her own lifetime, Doctor Sam Beckett (Natalie Morales) led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project, known as QUANTUM LEAP. Pressured to prove her theories or lose funding, Doctor Beckett, prematurely stepped into the Project Accelerator and vanished. She awoke to find herself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not her own. Fortunately, contact with her own time was made through brainwave transmissions, with Al (Aziz Ansari), the Project Observer, who appeared in the form of a hologram that only Doctor Beckett could see and hear. Trapped in the past, Doctor Beckett finds herself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong and hoping each time that her next leap will be the leap home."
