Tru Calling - Synopsis

"Tru Calling" is an American science fiction television series that aired from 2003 to 2005, created by Jon Harmon Feldman. The show centers around Tru Davies, a young woman played by Eliza Dushku, who discovers she has the ability to relive days and prevent deaths. Tru, a recent college graduate, starts working at a city morgue and soon realizes she can hear the voices of the recently deceased. This ability triggers her to relive the previous day, giving her the chance to alter events and save lives.

Each episode typically follows Tru's journey as she attempts to understand and prevent the untimely deaths of people who come to the morgue. She navigates various challenges, including criminal activities and moral dilemmas, often with the assistance of Davis, the morgue's day-shift attendant who becomes her confidant. The series also introduces Tru's brother Harrison, who eventually learns of her ability and aids her, and Jack Harper, a character with a similar ability but a contrasting belief that fate should not be altered.

"Tru Calling" explores themes of fate versus free will, the ethics of intervening in events, and the impact of such responsibilities on Tru's life. It delves into her family dynamics and reveals a complex background. The show was met with mixed reviews but gained a dedicated fan base, particularly for its innovative storytelling and Dushku's performance. Despite its unique premise and raising intriguing moral questions, the series struggled with ratings and was canceled after two seasons, leaving some storylines unresolved. Nonetheless, it remains remembered for its originality and as a precursor to shows with similar time loop concepts.
