Plot

Ohio State. In the town of Mercer, there is a research laboratory working in conjunction with an institute called Loop. The biggest mysteries of the Universe are revealed here, and therefore many incredible events take place. In particular, the main disasters happen to the relatives of the founder of the Loop. But the rest of the townspeople are not on the sidelines.

As a little girl, Loretta always tried to please her mother – to call her by name, because she was hated by the role of a guardian, bring good grades, cook, clean up after herself and help around the house. All she dreamed about was becoming a daughter to be proud of. But unfortunately, the mother never considered it necessary to reckon with the opinion of Loretta.

Once, Loretta found out that her mother stole a very valuable thing from the Loop – a stone that defies the laws of gravity. At night, the woman decided to conduct one of the experiments, but it ended unsuccessfully. That day, Loretta looked for her mother wherever she could, and later she met a boy named Cole. He invited her to his house, where he introduced his brother Jacob.

Frame from the series

Cole told his mother about this girl and it turned out that his mother is that Loretta. Just somehow, the temporary loops came together and thus the younger Loretta accidentally ended up in the house of the older Loretta. After explaining the matter to the child, the older Loretta set off on her own. And now her son, Jacob, became a participant in the following story.

Together with his classmate, they walked through the woods, where they found an empty rocket. When Jacob climbed inside, he woke up already in the body of his comrade. So they managed to deceive their parents for several days, but in the end the idea failed miserably. Each of them found out about what he was hiding from the other.

Each series is a new portion of magic that bound all Mercer. And if we are extremely careful, we can see the connection between each resident of the town and the Loop. It takes only a little patience and all the cards will fall right in front of you…
