Timer is a charming film that raises questions regarding whether knowing exactly when you will meet your soulmate will influence your actions in the interim.

Oona lives in the near future when an implant in the wrist determines when the person will meet that "special someone", assuming they too have an implant.

Oona, a dentist, is frustrated when her timer remains blank. But her stepsister, Steph is just as frustrated when her timer reveals a wait of 5200 days.

While it's true that the twists and turns are predictable, the film is charming to watch and well acted and better than many big budget romantic comedies.
