Title: Time Wasters
Length: 117 pages
Logline: An unemployed musician tries to make ends meet by taking a job at a fast-food restaurant. He’s quickly reassigned to the company’s research labs, where he’s assigned by a mad scientist to travel back in time and kill Calvin Coolidge. This pitch-black satire explores the instinct to improve one’s own life at the expense of everyone else’s — in this case, monkeying around in the past to improve one man’s present at the expense of tens of billions over untold centuries.
