CLASSIC SCIENCE-FICTION AT THE FRINGE DELVES INTO FATE AND THE MYSTERY OF LOVE
Sorry – not fraught with deep insight, doesn’t expose society’s hypocrisy, not even a coming of age angst story though indeed it is about young people.
Pacific Time is a science-fiction romance drama: guy meets girl inside a cozy little cafe where the old-time vacuum perked coffee is great and the sticky buns are to die for – but time and space wobble. Take a wrong turn coming out of the washroom and push through the back door marked exit – and you suddenly find yourself far away and long ago.
But as the young couple progress from mutual interest to love, fate throws up an unexpected, terrifying barrier to their happy future together – a challenge they confront with courage and integrity.
