    • Synopsis
    • Louisa CONNOLLY-BURNHAM (Wolfblood, Call the Midwife) and Mckell DAVID (Montana, elected 'UK Star of Tomorrow' by Screendaily.com) star in this highly original approach on time travelling.

      Rebellious teenager Kim Temple (Louisa Connally-Burnham) has a strange affliction that makes her feel very insecure: stressful situations cause her to lose consciousness. And stress is bound to increase since her criminal father, whom she fears deeply, is about to be released from prison.

      Kim’s life takes an unexpected turn when she discovers her sleeping fits enable her to peek into the past. When she witnesses a disturbing moment involving her father, many years ago, she realizes her disease might actually help her. Trying desperately to keep her father locked up, she forces herself into ever more dangerous situations and emotional distress that lead to more revealing ‘sleeping fits’.

      Even though she finds a friend to help her, time travel proves to be very perilous for Kim. Her unconscious body in the present is vulnerable to just about any kind of danger. Also, the longer she stays in the past, the weaker she becomes and the harder it is to return to the present. Her health deteriorates to the point where her condition becomes life threatening. But with so much at stake, quitting is not an option.

      Kim’s final journey to her past is also the most dangerous one, and although she achieves her goal in a very unexpected way, she loses her life – at least in the present. In the past a much better version of Kim’s life begins to take shape.
