Groundhog Day follows TV weather man Phil, who is ordered to cover the story of Punxsutawney Phil for the third year straight. Phil is disillusioned with his career and makes no attempt to hide his contempt for what his life has become. He covers the story and attempts to move on, expecting his job to be finished. However, he awakes the "following" day and discovers that it's Groundhog Day again, and his life becomes an unbridled comedy that repeats the same occurences again and again and again. He soon realizes he must take advantage of it in order to secure the love of a coworker.
