Fynn, a tinkerer-inventor, travels through time to the future to escape the political turmoil of the present. The future he finds himself in is far more bleak and dangerous than he imagined, but after discovering his granddaughter, Maya, in the wasteland he struggles to discern what’s worth fighting for.
This short film was created from concept to final render in 45 days with ,500 for entry into the 2017 Indie Memphis Film Festival.

The cast and crew came together as friends and strangers from all over the country to complete the project, as scifi/action films are a rarity in Memphis, TN.
