A VCR that could tape tomorrow's news.
Rela has just bought herself a new VCR. She sets the machine to tape a movie she plans to show at a party she is throwing. But instead of the movie she gets the news - tomorrow's news.
Soon Rela is regularly recording next week's news, even what is to happen in the far future. It's fun, at first, until she sees herself on the news. And learns that there is no future for her.
But can she change destiny?
Can Rela survive what is meant to be?
