1975: A man frantically packs his belongings into a box and vanishes into thin air. 40 years later, a lab assistant strives to preserve the sanity of a man consumed by the desire toi travel through time.
This is the story of one women’s quest to find an amazing future. Not her own future, but one sought so desperately by someone close to her that she fears he will lose his mind. A future where he believes the unanswered questions from the past must lie.
Over and over, she watches him fail to launch his impossible invention, until she realises that she must take matters into her own hands. Steering her way between illusion and reality, she guides him on his journey towards the future, with each leap drawing further and further into the unknown.
The Inconveniences of Time Travelling and Other Family Issues is a tragic comedy about hope, loss, friendship and the power of the imagination.
