Plot of the sci-fi movie
The plot of The Adam Project revolves around 13-year-old Adam Reed. He is still grieving the sudden death of his father the year before. One evening, he walks into his garage to find a wounded pilot hiding there. It turns out the mysterious pilot is an older version of Adam from the future, where time travel is in its infancy. He has risked everything to travel back in time on a secret mission.
The older and younger versions of Adam must embark on an adventure into the past to find their father. Together, they must set things right and save the world. Working together, they both come to terms with the loss of their father and get a chance to heal the wounds that have shaped them.
