England, 1941, sisters Thom and Mars have invented a machine they’ve named LOLA that can pick up radio and TV broadcasts from the future, allowing the sisters to discover everything from racing results to David Bowie, before he is even born.

But with the Second World War escalating, the sisters decide to use the machine to intercept information from the future that could help with military intelligence. The machine initially proves to be a huge success, rapidly twisting the fortunes of the war against the Nazis.

While Thom (Emma Appleton) becomes intoxicated by LOLA, Mars (Stefanie Martini) begins to realise the terrible consequences of its power. As their relationship falls apart, Thom makes a fatal error with her machine that leads to a nightmarish future.

Shot entirely on vintage cameras, and featuring an original score by the Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon, Irish director Andrew Legge’s debut feature is a fantastic blend of documentary, faux found footage and science fiction.

"By turns enchanting and heartbreaking, it speaks to the troubled history of the 20th Century yet feels bang up to date." Eye For Film
