Plot Synopsis:

The plot synopsis follows with the movie story line. Phil Connors, a TV weatherman in Pittsburgh, is covering the annual Groundhog Day event. He finds himself in a time loop, repeating the same day over and over again. He repeats this cycle until he fixes his mistakes. It is a story about Connors overcoming his flaws, his arrogance, and his selfish nature in order to appreciate the things in his life that he's neglected. In repeating the same day and learning his mistakes, he realizes he must take advantage of the chances he's given to gain the love of his co-worker.
