Robert d'Eglantine, a specialist in quantum physics, invites five of his friends to spend a weekend in his castle, lost in the woods, and to share in an experiment. According to his calculations, at 11:37 p.m., a rift will open in the space-time continuum and send them back 70 years to May 1944 — when Germany still occupies France and the Allied landing in Normandy is only weeks away. The participants suspect that d'Eglantine is involving them in a devilishly elaborate role-playing game — certainly this isn’t real time travel — but they soon face troubling events, and their excursion into the past threatens to change the course of history.
