How can you change your future if you can't change your past?
The storyline is as follows:
Paradox is a 97-minute sci-fi/drama about time travel, and the intrinsic questions of choice and free will that go along with that. Plagued by her poor life choices, Sophie Walters [Ashley Johnson], a young, aspiring scientist, decides to turn to time travel as a means of changing the dismal future she foresees for herself. Aided by her childhood friend, Caleb [Matt Dallas], and somewhat abetted by Jae, a 150-year-old time traveler from the year 2074, she embarks on a complex -- and dangerous -- journey to alter her fate, and in fact, the fate of the entire universe.
According to the information available, this time travel movie will be unlike any other in that its main plot device is the notion of the paradoxes inherent in time travel itself. It relies heavily on the theory that time is linear and that everything in our future has actually already happened... The director, Elana Mugdan, explains this in more detail in the video (below).
