The story is simple (by Zuz Buchowska) and speaks about the futility of indecision. An ordinary child is faced with an overwhelming question, if you could turn back a moment in time which moment would you chose? The story has been divided into six parts and with every new part, one of the three colours is replaced while the other two are retained, creating a shifting colour palette for the film.

Synopsis–

A girl gets an extraordinary birthday gift. A watch that turns back time, with a catch: she can only use this feature once in her lifetime. What seems like a great gift at first, turns out to be a burning question constantly in the back of her head. The story follows some significant moments from the protagonist’s life - her beloved dog dies, she can save a stranger’s life, her unplanned child.

“Is THIS the moment? Would I like things to be different?”, she asks herself constantly. Until she realizes that the only way to free herself from the never-ending doubt and unanswered “what ifs” is to use this unique feature on a mundane, insignificant moment. To enjoy the rest of her life embracing all the mistakes and bad decisions that follow.
