PRIMER

At night and on weekends, four men in a suburban garage have built a cottage industry of error-checking devices. But, they know that there is something more. There is some idea, some mechanism, some accidental side effect that is standing between them and a pure leap of innovation. And so, through trial and error they are building the device that is missing most. However, two of these men find the device and immediately realize that it is too valuable to market. The limit of their trust in each other is strained when they are faced with the question: If you always want what you can’t have, what do you want when you can have anything?

The film takes place in the industrial park and suburban tract-home fringes of an unnamed US city. Four engineers - Aaron, Abe, Robert, and Phillip - work for a large corporation during the day, and run a side business out of Aaron’s garage at night designing, building, and selling their own electronic products. Due to a difference of opinion on where the group should go next, Aaron and Abe independently take to designing a compact high-temperature superconductor. Their device is an improvement upon traditional superconductivity; but an unexpected side effect of the machine has far greater implications.

It’s fiction en7r0py. Why are you posting this in the Science forum? Thirsty people lost in the desert do not suck down sand because they’re thirsty. They do it because they’re too delirious to care about the difference between sand and water.
