Meet Teo and Oscar: two young, precocious brothers during the summer of 1982.
Teo has gotten into mischief by "borrowing" some of their scientist mother's quantum physics notes.
He believes he has found the entrance to a Einstein-Rosen bridge, also known as a "wormhole."
Oliver is skeptical, thinking Teo is indulging in a flight of fancy.
Thirty-five years later, Teo brings Oliver back to the site he believes is the opening of the wormhole.
There the bickering brothers make the discovery of a lifetime.
Einstein-Rosen is soulful and life-affirming. It is also the latest genre short directed by Spanish filmmaker Olga Osorio in which the manipulation of time is the main premise.
Her previous short reSTART is a sci-fi thriller-mystery about a woman reliving her abduction via a time loop.
Einstein-Rosen is a different beast being a heartstring-tugging comedy, though time - in this case a wormhole - is again the plot device used to examine one of the most personal of human relationships: siblings.
Sci-fi stories involving time travel often result in nonsensical and headache-inducing narratives.
Osorio is the exception due to her uncanny ability to take this most heady of subjects and mold it to create deeply affecting, intimate emotional portraits.
She is quickly becoming one of our favorite filmmakers to watch.
