The 1970s: Scientist James (John Noble) and his assistant Peter (Nic Jackman) find a stone from a meteor has a very unique power: It can alter the past - but for everything good you do something terrible will happen. Like when James saves his granddaughter Ana (Shayne Coleman) for a fatal accident, but his wife died in exchange.

Since back in the day, James has long buried the stone in a secret place and has gone senile, so chances are it will never again be found. Ana (as a grown-up played by Melina Matthews), now a psychotherapist, and her son Felix (Ian Garcia Monterrubio) are taking good care of him now, but it breaks her heart to see his mind gone a little bit more every day. Re-enter Peter (now played by Rupert Graves), who tells her mentioning "3-3-3" (incidently 3:33 being the only time of day the stone works) will awaken James from his senility, and she tries it, to initially seemingly no effect, until in the middle of the night James darts off to try to find the stone, but with no success. On the next day though, a guy (Hoze Meléndez) shows up at Ana's house who tries to steal the stone, and when he can't get it (for obvious reasons), he kills James, kidnaps Felix, and gives Ana 24 hours to find the stone. Ana hooks up with a psychic patient of hers, Daniel (Michel Chauvet), who says he's in touch with her deceased sister (Lucy Paez), and apparently the sister helps them find the stone. Meanwhile though, in captivity, Felix dies from an asthma attack - and Ana's sister is able to convey that information to her and Daniel. So when the kidnapper arrives at Ana's to fetch the stone, they make him their captive, then try to get out of him who has actually employed him, while at the same time Ana needs to safeguard the stone in order to get Felix back from the dead. But whoever it is who employed the kidnapper must have a very good reason for going through all these troubles, and who knows how far he's determined to go ...


A very interesting piece of mystical science fiction, this one combines classic sci-fi aspects like time travel with paranormal phenomena and even more mundane elements from crime cinema and cooks it all up to make a tense and exciting movie full of twists and turns, creepy bits and suspense sequences, and thanks to a clever script and directorial effort, everthing comes together as a homogenic whole. And of course, strong central performances don't hurt one bit either.
