"Source Code" is a gripping sci-fi thriller that revolves around Captain Colter Stevens, a helicopter pilot who finds himself in the body of another man.
He soon realizes he's part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. He has only eight minutes to complete this mission, and if he fails, he's sent back to the start of the eight-minute window, forced to relive the same moments until he can prevent the bombing.
As he races against time, Stevens also seeks to uncover the truth behind the Source Code, the mysterious program that enables him to relive the same moments repeatedly.
