A masterful tale from the founding father of science fiction. An ingenious inventor creates a machine which can hurtle through time. With no idea what to expect, the time traveler sets out on an epic adventure into the unknown. On his first journey into the future of the human race, the traveler encounters the Eloi: an apathetic but carefree tribe, forming a close bond with the woman Weena. Less appealing however, are the bestial Morlocks who stalk the area at night, picking off the Eloi for food. When his time machine disappears, the time traveler is faced with no option but to confront the ape-like creatures, unwittingly starting deadly battle in order to escape.
