Synopsis/Details: 

Alexander Cooper is a cop who has one regret; not being able to solve a crime where the mastermind got away. Now, with the statute of limitations about to expire, he meets with one of her gang. He informs Cooper that the reason he will never catch the ringleader is that she used a time machine to send herself to just after the end of the statute of limitations. Cooper has to decide if he believes such a story or not, and what that means for his case.
