An inventor living at the turn of the 20th century has crafted a machine that can move through time. He passes through historical events, climatological changes and thousands of years beyond to find a strange future of romance and danger. In this new world, he encounters the Eloi, a beautiful, indolent, pleasure seeking race, and the Morlocks, mutated, hideous, industrious, and savage.
