(mbc.net) When Alexander Hartdegen (Guy Pearce), a scientist, professor, and inventor in 1895 New York City who believes that time travel is possible, is faced with the unexpected death of his fiancé Emma (Sienna Guillory), he builds a time machine hoping to travel back in time and somehow alter events and save her.

Failing to change the past he projects himself 800,000 years into the future where he hopes to find answers to the nature of time itself, but instead finds the world is divided into two races, the peaceful Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks. The Eloi live on the sides of cliffs of what was once Manhattan, and one woman, Mara, nurses Alexander back to health. But the next day the Eloi are attacked and Mara is dragged underground by ape-like monsters called Morlocks who hunt Eloi for food.

Disappointed with his failure to save Emma, now Alexander will try to save Mara...
