Not Lost

Logline:

Two siblings discover the truth about their father’s disappearance and his life as a time traveler. Mixing his research with their own ingenuity they scour time and space in a desperate attempt to find him.

"I have experimental evidence that time travel is not possible. I gave a party for time-travellers, but I didn't send out the invitations until after the party. I sat there a long time, but no one came."

- Stephen Hawking

What if time travel is possible but it's like the Heisenberg uncertanty principal in that you can't know both the momentum and position of a given particle. Perhaps you can travel through time but can not predict where and when in time you will arrive? 

So with this thought, I want to create a story that is an exploration of history as two siblings search for their father. I thought it might be interesting to set the story in the near future in an alternative timeline that shifts as the story progresses. So the audience is privy to changes but the characters are unaware because their perception of time is always linear. 

I also wanted to give the siblings some logical contraints. Like ripping a hole in space and time requires a tremendous amount of energy and they only have the resources to open up a dime-size stable wormhole. So they create a swarm of robot-bees to explore time and space in search of their father. The bees have his DNA and their stings collect samples.

... that's all I've got so far.
