Calvin Thompson spent countless years mastering the field of Time Travel Technology and just when he is finally about to become the first official time traveler, a jealous co-worker, Eric Seabright, sends him back in time to the year 1831 in the deep south at the height of slavery. With 4 months to make it to a Backlash zone (a safety component within the Time Machine that may transport him back to the future), Calvin struggles to overcome slavery, futuristic hit-men, and the demons inside of him that will not allow him to love and appreciate the people who are indispensable to his survival, his humanity and the victory of his journey.
