    "Time Stau" is a gritty, hyper-real movie detailing a young couple falling in love, experiencing the exciting beginnings of addiction, and seeking simultaneous time travel. Partially based on Throwell's personal history, "Time Stau", expands the narrative from the personal to the global by portraying the fast spreading epidemic of meth destroying lives throughout the world. Dirk Skreber’s and Zefrey Throwell’s first short film collaboration, takes us along for the ride, through a sumptuous tableaux of narratives of this young couple. Their lives deteriorate before our eyes, suspended in their own time slip, as they lose all sense of self, friends and family, surrendering to the irresistible lure of the drug and the incomprehensible mystery of the power of addiction.
