    • Synopsis
    • Emi is your typical 90s pre-teen, a moody music lover who is constantly embarrassed by his family and their variety TV show hijinks. During a trip to their studio, he discovers an analog device with magical powers, but when his grandfather uses it to tape the show, his parents accidentally vanish into thin air.

      In the midst of grief and the rush of first love, Emi must find a way to change the past through an unusual portal: his family home videos.
