Everything begins to fall apart until Katie is visited by a house spirit who offers her a chance to change the past. Eat a magic mushroom, write her mistake in a notebook, fall asleep and awake to a second chance.
That was all she needed, a second chance. But that doesn't last long, things seem to be on track again until her exboyfriend shows up at the restaurant messing everything up again. Katie needs just a few more second chances to set everything straight. But second chances don't come without a price...and Katie has quite a bill to pay...
