20 April 2018 | by ksteverson-41307See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this movie on Amazon prime and started watching fully expecting to turn it off after 10 minutes. Instead, the movie drew me in, entertained, and left a lasting impression. To the point where I felt compelled to leave this review, and I never review anything online. It is a low-budget production, which shows to varying degrees throughout. But if you can overlook the lack of polish, the acting and writing are surprisingly good and drive the movie along.

On the surface, this movie is about time travel, but, like all of the best time travel movies, it is actually about something else. The movie uses time travel to explore ideas of love, obsession, and regret, and does so in a way that I will be thinking about for some time to come.

It is hard to say more without giving spoilers, but I would recommend this movie to anyone who is willing to get passed the low production values in order to experience a really unique story.
