A Walkman lets a man travel through time to save his lost love

A cassette player serves as a time machine in the tender short film Record/Play. Our protagonist can travel to the time and place where he lost his lady love—but can he save her life?


Jesse Atlas co-wrote and directed this short, which was an official selection at Sundance. It's a wonderful example of a story in which the hero hopes he can use his fantastical power to win himself a perfect ending, but has to settle for the ending he can live with.
