Not the movie, it's actually pretty good and well worth the 28 minutes of your life it will use up. It's Stuart's time machine that is, in what *must* be irony, a waste of time.
When the film starts Stuart Hornsley (Tunde Adebimpe) seems to be a graduate student in physics, working on a time machine. Because he's close to a breakthrough he passes up a once in a lifetime moment, and when next we see him it's seven years later and he's living what he no longer considers to be "his real life" all because of that one moment. He works his way through several lives in order to get the one he wants.
It seems like the writers were working with some strange physics of their own. Essentially Stuart makes a wrong turn, but instead of going back he keeps driving, and yet he gets to the right destination by a different route. I've learned my lesson, I'm never stopping to ask for directions again.
