Café owner Kato discovers that his PC monitor shows what will happen two minutes in the future. Another screen downstairs in his café shows the past of two minutes ago. His friends decide to place the two mysterious devices opposite each other, which creates a loop to see into the future. Naturally, chaos ensues.

Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes is a delightfully light-hearted film about five likeable friends who discover the art of time-traveling.

Light-hearted though it is, there’s no denying the tremendous skill and creativity behind this one-take wonder. Comparisons to One Cut of the Dead are obvious but not unfounded – prepare to fall for the charm of this quotidian sci-fi masterpiece.
