London, present time: Tom wakes up in the middle of the night to see his twenty year old self, Tomas, pointing a gun at his face. Tomas just traveled through time from 1980's USSR to see how Socialism is prospering. As a dedicated party member and future soldier, has been chosen specifically by the Socialist government for this vital experiment. Tom laughs in his face and shows him the events of last twenty years. It becomes very clear to Tomas that there has been a huge mistake. He has to do all he can, to save Socialism from its fate, at any cost.

When Tom and Tomas are first standing face to face, you can see the young Tomas is 2-3 inches taller than Tom, possibly more with old Tom's bushy hair making him look taller. See more »
Great ending - I think...
Great bit of proper sci-fi. Not sure there were any special effects - more of a dramatised thought experiment. Production values pretty good given the obvious low budget. Without getting into spoiler territory, if you got to the end without any lingering thoughts, then watch/think again - I think there's an important conclusion to be drawn that many might miss.
