Following his family's untimely demise, prairie homesteader George Bassler bizarrely spends 1945 crafting a Perpetual Motion machine uncannily echoing similarly named inventor Johann Bessler's 1712 invention, the Perpetuum Mobile. Based on actual events, this film explores obsession with employing mechanical devices to trick time and make everything last forever.
