Daniel loses his wife and son in a car accident. While slowly recovering from his injuries, he rebuilds his son's video camera that was destroyed in the crash. Infused with power from the moment of the crash, the camera develops the ability to stop time when Daniel presses the pause button. This discovery restores Daniel's purpose, and he fills the vacuum in his life by taking responsibility for another victim, Sarah, a newlywed who lost her husband in the same accident. At first Daniel only watches her, then tries to improve her life in small ways. But using his power to "help" becomes an addiction, and the vastness of Daniel's power can do only one thing...corrupt him. Written by Anonymous

Amazing indie science fiction film
17 March 2008 | by alyIMDBSee all my reviews

I feel like it's tough to find really good, smart science fiction sometimes, so it was an incredibly satisfying experience to see this film at a screening in LA. The story is both contemplative and very intense, with characters who draw you in emotionally even as you become horrified by the events that are playing out. The cinematography is beautiful, and the visual effects are simple, elegantly planned out, and just executed extremely well. They alternately creep you out and give you a sense of wonder and adventure as the main character discovers he can do extraordinary things. The story moves along at a good pace - taking its time in all the right places, leaving you tense and unsettled in others. Overall, well worth taking the time to seek out and watch.
