Part of the fun of time-travel movies is batting around their rules, and bending brains in an attempt to follow the internal logic or lack thereof.

Finn (Matt O’Leary), the building manager for an apartment complex, along with his girlfriend Callie (Danielle Panabaker) and their skeezy live-in buddy Jasper (George Finn), discover a device in their deceased neighbor’s apartment that takes Polaroid-style pictures providing a glimpse one day into the future. With the machine bolted to the floor and pointed at their apartment window, programmed to take a photo at 8:00 every night, the group can receive messages—intentional and not—from their future selves.
