Logline 

​​

The pain of regret forces a man to change the fabric of time and save a love he swore would last forever.

 

 

 

Short note from the director  

 

The term science fantasy draws upon tropes and elements from both science fiction and fantasy, this term has not been used since 1966, Rod Sterling defined the difference

 

 

Distinguishing between science fiction and fantasy, Rod Serling claimed that the former was "the improbable made possible" while the latter was "the impossible made probable". As a combination of the two, science fantasy gives a scientific veneer of realism to things that simply could not happen in the real world under any circumstances. Where science fiction does not permit the existence of fantasy or supernatural elements, science fantasy explicitly relies upon them.

 

 

The Term Science Fantasy has not been used since 1966, I want to bring it back and call this film  ‘a romantic science fantasy film. Inspired by original  Twilight zone episodes from 1959, La Jetée (1962) by Chris Marker, Tarkovsky's Solaris (1972), and Primer (2004)
