Lucen is a child genius with a talent for invention and engineering. During one fateful summer, he enlists his loyal best friend Brian to help him build a time machine.
At first, the project seems like a lark, a way to spend the summer hours. But as Brian gets to know Lucen and discovers Lucen’s painfully distant family life, with an emotionally remote father and absent mother, he realizes the time machine has a much bigger significance for Lucen. When Lucen’s invention is complete, it takes the precocious youth to an unexpected and emotional place.
What an absolutely WONDERFUL short film!
