       Additional Information  
      In 1972 a couple with each person born on LEAP YEAR DAY IN 1896 were killed by a tornado when DEATH, ‘THE GRIM REAPER,’ created an extra day to end the life of the psychic Jack Riggins. The DEVIL used the idea to send his disciples from hell to earth. They all have the same gift being born on February the 29th of 1976. Heaven also sends disciples to earth to battle the evil forces. It is good versus evil in the final showdown with DEATH stalking both sides. Hunter Stokes was born on Feb. 29, 1976. He soon found out that being born on a 'LEAP YEAR DAY' was weirder than he thought. His best friend Miller shares the same birthday. But when an accident takes Miller's life at age 17, Hunter can't deal with it emotionally and is placed in an asylum in Lynchburg, Virginia. On his 21st birthday, Hunter realizes he has special powers. All kids born on his birthday have a gift: they are able to roam free for an extra day while the rest of the people on earth are frozen in time. Hunter escapes from the asylum. While experiencing the phenomenon of being free to move while others are frozen, he finds Marina Hampton, another person who shares his birth date. Together they form a good faction and try making sense of all the crazy world happenings. They, along with the others they meet in Los Angeles, California, are not allowed to tell anyone of their special gift, except others born on their birthday. People start dying without reason. Hunter's group learns there is a supernatural force that wants no part in these 'LEAP YEAR KIDS' having any gift. How are they going to survive?
