Three generations of reckless and unsustainable development have transformed the future environment into an almost total wasteland.

Refugees from the future have found a way to return to the past, but the impact on present-day resources and fear of these 'immigrants' has led to the formation of citizen watch groups, who are determined to stop these time-travelers at any cost.

Jackson, the teenage son of one of these bounty hunters, is enlisted into his first patrol -- eventually forcing him into a brutal choice between his father's principles and his own sense of humanity.

Joe Turner Lin received the Arthur Krim Award, HBO’s Young Producer’s Development Award, and Columbia University’s Best Producer for his Student Academy Award-winning short, Jesus Henry Christ. His thesis film, Seibutsu (Still: Life), was a national finalist for the Student Academy Awards and won the Grand Jury Prize at the San Diego Asian International Film Festival and the Chinese American Festival of Film and Culture. Since film school, he has worked on more than 80 feature-length and short films, television, commercial, and music video productions, from National Geographic to Universal Motown Records. He is preparing to direct his first feature, Pick.
