To Zak, its the perfect gadget to impress Francesca (Paula Garces), the beautiful new foreign exchange student at school. But to those more passionately familiar with the incredible timepiece-a hapless scientist (French Stewart) and his sinister boss (Michael Biehn) - the ultimate power of the entire world literally lies in the hands of whoever possesses the amazing apparatus. They want it back-at any cost-and thats when Zak and Francesca find themselves unwittingly swept into a thrilling, high-tech race against time!
