Before I Fall

Synopsis: What if you had only one day to change absolutely everything? Samantha Kingston has it all: the perfect friends, the perfect guy, and a seemingly perfect future. Then, everything changes. After one fateful night, Sam wakes up with no future at all. Trapped reliving the same day over and over she begins to question just how perfect her life really was. And as she begins to untangle the mystery of a life suddenly derailed, she must also unwind the secrets of the people closest to her, and discover the power of a single day to make a difference, not just in her own life, but in the lives of those around her - before she runs out of time for good.

What's he like?

What does it mean when something

is described as being Sisyphean?

Does it mean pointless?



Uh, sorry, it was an

emergency and a tribulation.

It was a minor

LaserJet explosion.

Hope the printer survived.

All right, back to Sisyphus.

What's his character like?

Does he learn from

pushing that boulder...


Val-a-gram delivery.

Happy Cupid Day.

Go ahead.

Relax, it's just roses.

Aw, no roses for Anna.

Is that from your boy?

It's from Rob. Yeah.

All right, all right. Keep it down.

Keep it down, people.

It's so beautiful.

I'm in heteronormative hell.

Okay, okay, let's

hope third time's the charm. Okay?


Back to Sisyphus, class.

Yo, Sam.



Sam, hey.


Did you like it?

Like what?

Hey, so, um, big party tonight.

Mom is going out of town. Whoa.

A huge rager, you know.

Why don't you come, yeah?

I don't know what my plans are,

like, what everyone else

ends up doing...

So I'll see you tonight.

I don't think so.

Yeah? You know the address.

No. Kent...


- Did you guys hear about Anna?

- You mean bull dyke.

Please say she tripped

over her nose.

Not yet, but her

girlfriend saw this Snap

that we posted

with her and that girl.

She straight up dumped her.



This is why I deserve

some public recognition,

for making shit

like that happen.

Maybe someone should

give me a ribbon.

Like the ones that you used

to have hanging on your wall,

Sammy, remember,

from horseback riding?

I was, like,

ten years old, Lindsay.

God, Sam, you were

such a nerd back then.

Okay, but isn't it weird

how that stuff happens?

How things connect

in strange ways?

Like if Lindsay

didn't post that Snap...

She deserved it.

I'm just saying,

it's kinda crazy now.

I saw this video about chaos
