Riley Brown is a regular teenage girl, except for the fact that she is able to to go back in time and change her past. Jay who is a concerned friend is the only person she has told about her time traveling ability. When going back or 'rewinding', Riley takes physical damage to her body such as head aches, nose bleeds and even coughing blood. She also risks altering other events she did not intend to. Over the series she learns that she can't always change the inevitable with her abilities, but still tries to.Written by

In Act 5, when Riley does her big rewind to where Act 1 begins, she passes through the memory of Jay and Quinn having their 'smoke break'. However, that particular timeline that she rewound through was one where Riley tries to save Angela's life the final time, stopping Jay and Quinn ever meeting, let alone having their 'smoke break'.

While I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, it was lacking in a few places, and there were a few things that it could have done without. I understand that this was a first for the director, writers, and producers. I feel they hit the gay story just a little too hard (and by that I mean a LOT too hard. Too much gay story going on.) The acting was pretty hard to not laugh at on some scenes as well. Knowing Anna Akana's work, I felt like she was being herself, and not Riley. I did love the cartoon cut-scenes of introduction. Great for laying out parts of the story. I also loved the humor in many of the lines. Overall, I would definitely recommend to friends and family. I'm excited to see Runaway Machines next project.
