David (Hayden Christensen), is sort of the outcast in high school. He likes a girl named Millie (Rachel Bilson), and has found her a snow globe with the Pairs Eiffel Tower in it as he knows how found her dreams are of once traveling to Europe and seeing everything. But a bully at school makes fun of him and throws the globe onto thin ice. David is caught in an under current below the ice, resurfacing soaking wet, in the school library. While everyone thinks David has died, he has quickly discovered he has a power to teleport from any area to another but just implanting the image in his mind.
Five years later, David has learned that he is a "jumper" and can keep an awesome lifestyle funded by teleporting in and out of vaults of bank. He is also able to see the world by teleporting anywhere in it, like picking up a hottie in London and back for dinner in N.Y. that night. What David doesn't realise is that are another group of teleporters who deem it their goal in life to put and end to "jumpers." One such is Roland (Samuel L. Jackson) who's life long mission is to find these "jumpers" and kill them all.
When David comes back into Millie's life and offers her a trip to Rome, she "jumps" on it and though the two use normal methods of transportation to get there, their lives won't be the same after their journey. It seems a fellow "jumper" named Griffin (Jamie Bell), has been following David for many years. He knows Roland is after David as well as himself and the two somewhat join to put an end to Roland.
