Four top scientists in their respective fields and probably four of the most brilliant minds in the whole wide world, Sandra (Lisa Bearpark), Carol (Jennifer Lila), Kate (Vee Vimolmal) and David (Håkan Julander) are summond by science legend Dr. Wahlstein (Daniel Epstein) for a special research project - but once they arrive they're locked into the room, and via a recorded message learn that Wahlstein has long died but with his dying breath has given them a series of numbers which they have to make sense of in order to survive. Of course, this sounds like a sick joke, but once they find out the room is booby-trapped they see no other way out than to solve the riddle, of which they don't know the answer of course, but neither the question - but they're brilliant enough to eventually come up with very viable theories involving time travel, tachyons and parallel universes ... which is when one of their ranks, Carol, starts disappearing and first reappearing again in slightly different places, then disappearing altogether, but Dr. Wahlstein, not dead at all, does appear, and it soon becomes somehow apparent that different universes seem to collide, and the room our heroes are kept in is the area of the first impact - but what to do and how to steer it they still have to figure out, and it's not at all helped that the different dimensions gradually become mingled almost beyong comprehension ...

 

Now if your idea of science fiction is enormous explosions, fancy costumes and futuristic sets, then Tangent Room, a film restricted to just one very ordinary room in which people in everyday outfits are mostly talking is not for you - and having said that, I'm not in the least implying that Tangent Room is in the least boring, as it manages to bring its story across via well-written dialogue and escapes pure brainy-ness by making its topics tangible, basically making the numbers it's "based on" (which I don't pretend to understand in the least) as a mere catalyst to keep the story going rather than the center of its narrative. Now add to that a strong cast and a well-constructed narrative arc, and you've basically got yourself a pretty cool movie!
