5ive Days to Midnight 2004
Dr. J. T. Neumeyer is a physics professor at a research university and the single parent of a daughter, Jesse. His wife died ten years ago while giving birth to their child, making one of the most joyous days in his life also the saddest. While visiting his wife's grave with Jesse on her birthday, they discover a strange locked briefcase engraved "Professor J. T. Neumeyer". When he unlocks the combination, Hutton finds a file containing the details of his murder five days in the future.
At first J. T. thinks that it is a hoax, albeit an elaborate one. There are newspaper clippings and crime scene photos along with an autopsy report and a list of suspects. But the more he looks at it, the more convinced he becomes that the file is real.
Will he be able to solve the puzzle of his own impending death in time? Is it possible to change destiny? And if so, will changing the future rupture the fabric of space-time?
