Abstract: This paper is concerned with the Cauchy Problem

$\displaystyle \dot x\left( t \right) = f\left( {t,x\left( t \right)} \right),\quad x\left( {{t_0}} \right) = {x_0} \in {\mathbb{R}^n},$

where the vector field $ f$ may be discontinuous with respect to both variables $ t,x$. If the total variation of $ f$ along certain directions is locally finite, we prove the existence of a unique solution, depending continuously on the initial data.
