When two small time engineers accidentally create a time machine, their friendship is put to the test as they attempt to use their discovery to change their lives. In their garage experiment, Aaron and Abe notice an altered growth rate in proteins that they can't explain with conventional models. Can the two maintain control of their experiment? Director, screenwriter, editor, soundtrack composer and lead actor Shane Carruth, himself a mathematician by training, shot PRIMER largely in his garage. „The budget was reportedly around $7,000, but that was enough: The movie never looks cheap, because every shot looks as it must look.“ (Roger Ebert)
