Widower must on front both strangers who came to see his world be destroyed. He also has to deal with his own personal demons.

Jeff Daniels, whose place in cinema immortality has been sealed by his role in "Dumb and Dumber", with Jim Carey, was superb in his portrayal as Ben Wilson, a widower who must fight the forces that are about to destroy his world. These forces include a strange group of time travelers who came to his inn to witness the destruction of his world, a judge who considers him to be an unfit father, and last but not least, Ben Wilson must fight his own personal demons.

The movie not only includes spectacular special effects, it also has an excellent storyline.

The movie holds the viewers' attention from start to finish. And the story has a few twists and turns.

Although this movie is a budget priced video, this movie is excellent and would not disappoint the sci-fi fan.
