At the exact moment the clock strikes midnight, suddenly the ground opens beneath her feet and Arisa is taken to Wonderland where the inhabitants, who resemble people she knows in her world, all call her Alice. Arisa relives the same day in Wonderland over and over, and she must find the real Alice to be able to break the cycle and return to her own world.
