In one timeline, he’s the eponymous Buster, a burglar prowling wintery Montana for abandoned cabins that he can, you guessed it, bust into for supplies and shelter. Elsewhere, he’s dedicated husband and father Jonah, living out a quiet existence as a hotel clerk in a little town. But are those timelines so different and so divided? And are Buster and Jonah?
