Storyline

14-year old Susan Shawson travels back in time in her building's elevator. As altered by a retired physicist living in her building, it transports her from Philadelphia of 1998 back to the same place in 1881. There she meets Victoria Walker, a girl her own age in need of assistance with her own family problems. Gradually discovering the power of her time machine, Susan, Victoria, and her young brother Robert travel back and forth in time and succeed in changing both the past and the future.

Goofs

When Frank Shawson looks out of his window after Susan's second disappearance the date 1847 can clearly be seen on the wall of the building. This means that it could not be on the same spot as the Walker house, it would already have been standing for 34 years in 1881. See more »

Love through time.
14 January 1999 | by (Moseley, Virginia) – See all my reviews

A fascinating look at the relationship of a single father in 1998 and a single mother in 1881, tied together by a time-traveling teenager. Reminded me of "Somewhere In Time," Richard Matheson's "Bid Time Return," as rendered by Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour.
