1941, sisters Thom and Mars have built a machine, LOLA, that can intercept radio and TV broadcasts from the future. This allows them to rock out to music from the 50s, 60s and 70s, rip off the bookies and be wild feral punks well before that movement came into existence.
But with the Second World War escalating, the sisters decide to use the machine to intercept information from the future that could help with military intelligence. The machine initially proves to be a huge success, rapidly twisting the fortunes of the war against the Nazis.
While Thom becomes intoxicated by LOLA, Mars begins to realise the terrible consequences of its power. As their relationship falls apart, Thom makes a fatal error with her machine that leads to a nightmarish future. Can the sisters love for each other save the world they’ve lost?
