Storyline

17 year old Z.T., a brilliant mind and solid athlete, dreams of a great college and a future of invention and innovation. But he still grieves over his mother's recent death, a shoulder injury will likely prevent him from an athletic scholarship, and his father has squandered his college trust fund in bad investments. His situation is desperate. Suddenly Z.T. is confronted with ZACK, a raving, 67 year old alcoholic, who claims to be Z.T.'s older self, volunteering as a lab rat in the first experiments in time-travel. Zack has changed his identity to fool the scientists, in a desperate attempt to convince his younger self to avoid a terrible compromise in integrity, which will ultimately set him on a downward spiral toward ruin and tragedy. Z.T. is understandably skeptical, but ultimately is forced to consider Zack's claims. Together they attempt to provoke the old man's fragile, piece-meal memory, to find the exact moment and small choice that began the domino effect of Z.T.'s ... Written by Anonymous

Future Perspective

What would it be like to meet your future self? Z.T. Twain (Ean Mering), a 17 year old budding genius and decent athlete, gets the chance to do so. However, his future did not turn out well, at least from the appearance of things. "Zack" warns Z.T. that he made a decision that changed everything, and Z.T. has to figure out what it was that caused him to go from a potential scientist to a down and out wino. The best thing going for this family film is how natural all the characters are for their parts. Craig Nelson has a small part, yet he captures the desperation and self-destructive loathing of a man who made a bad choice and has to live with it the rest of his life. There is some heart felt conversation and confrontation between him and Z.T., his son, over the loss of the wife/mother. Robert Loggia pulls this rather improbable story concept together as "Zack", Z.T.'s future persona. The movie is a little cheesy in places, yet it is not totally predictable. Great film for 8 up to pre-teens, and has some important life lessons to impart about how decisions can have long reaching consequences, no matter how small they seem at the time.
