A man afflicted with precognition thinks that injecting gallium will help him save the people he loves likes.

Movies like this lean very heavily on acting and subtleties of storytelling which this movie simply lacks in enough intensity to make it stand out from a student's short film. This is a hard pass even for people who like these basic ideas.
