Twelfth grader science enthusiast David (Weston) chances upon plans to build a time machine and eagerly sets to work with a bunch of classmates. The teenage basement scientists soon master the art of time travel, causing a few pointless mishaps along the way. For his first feature film, short movie director and screenwriter Israelite jumps on the found footage bandwagon. But the trick falls flat, and viewers are left wishing they too could go back in time – and decide not to watch after all.
