“We all have our time machines, don’t we.
Those that take us back are memories…
And those that carry us forward, are dreams.”

– HG WELLS

TRAILER

SYNOPSIS

When artist Maleonn realizes that his father suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, he creates “Papa’s Time Machine”–a magical, autobiographical stage performance featuring life-size mechanical puppets. Through the production of this play, the two men confront their mortality before time runs out and memories are lost forever.
