Tagline: Time Is Power. / His crime wasn't stealing time. He was giving it away.
In a future where TIME has become the ultimate currency. A person stops aging at 25, but: a person is genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless one can buy his/her way out of it. The rich "earns" decades at a time, becoming essentially immortal. A man who was "rich"
It's a unique film. Well, at least the concept. However the storyline is somewhat similar to Robin Hood meeting Wall Street. It's about a system collapsing where power and money is kept to a few. Quite dramatic in some moments. It could have been improved though... acting, chemistry and lines....
