When a down-on-his-luck inventor builds a time machine to change the past, he unwittingly sets off a disastrous chain of events.

This short film was made based on the following constraints:

  • Cannot take place entirely in one location.
  • Someone must say the words “time travel.”
  • Two characters must have a long-standing rivalry.
  • When one character was a kid, he/she used to wish he/she could travel back in time to see real-life dinosaurs.
  • One character is a wine lover and is very picky/elitist about their wine.
  • One character prefers bubble baths to showers.
  • Someone has to say: “I have to go back.”
