The idea started for the director a few years ago when he thought the hands of his clock were going backwards and that got him thinking about a world where time flowed backwards.  Would it be a happy world — eliminating the element of risk in our lives?  Or would it be a dour, hopeless world — one where we couldn’t make any choices?  As with most things, we believe it is somewhere in between.  The good with the bad.  Happiness with sadness.  Night with day.
