Emmy Coer, a computer genius, devises a method of communicating with the past by tapping into undying information waves. She manages to reach the world of Ada Lovelace, founder of the idea of a computer language and proponent of the possibilities of the "difference engine."

Ada's ideas were stifled and unfulfilled because of the reality of life as a woman in the nineteenth century. Emmy has a plan to defeat death and the past using her own DNA as a communicative agent to the past, bringing Ada to the present.

Hershman emphasized the connection of the characters by structuring the visual design around the idea of a double helix affecting the placement actors and camera movements. 1997, U.S., DCP, 85 minutes. Recommended for 16+
