A Comedy about the End of the World

It is the great year of 1907. Dr Plonk, eminent scientist and inventor, calculates that the world will end in exactly 101 years unless immediate action is taken. As befalls visionaries through the ages, Plonk is ridiculed for his beliefs, by politicians, by bureaucrats, even by his faithful manservant Paulus. Being the lateral thinker that he is, Plonk invents a time machine and sets out to collect the necessary proof from the very future that's ending.

But little about the year of 2007 makes sense to the intrepid doctor. His efforts to alert the appropriate authorities cause him to fall foul of the law and become a hunted man. With the nation's entire law-enforcement system arrayed against him, a scientific question is posed...can Dr Plonk run fast enough?

Rolf de Heer (TEN CANOES) has spun back cinematic time to the days of Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and Charlie Chaplin with an energetic, funny, adventure-filled farce. Starring Magda Szubanski, Nigel Lunghi, Paul Blackwell and introducing Reg the dog!
