Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) aka the Charmed Ones are the target of a warlock who tries to kill them.

Each time he fails, the demon Tempus turns back the clock so he can try again. He will remember what happened so he can learn from his mistake taking him one step closer to killing the witches.
