A silent, black and white comedy about the end of the world, ala Charlie Chaplin!

Dr Plonk, famous scientist and inventor, works away in his laboratory, trying to make sense of the world. It is the year 1907. Plonk is somewhat less than ably assisted by his deaf mute assistant, Paulus, and further disruptions to the clarity of his thought are provided by the winsome Mrs Plonk, and by his Tiberius, a dog obsessed with spherical objects.

One fateful day, the Plonkmobile runs out of fuel, leading Dr Plonk to a series of discoveries. Many calculations later Plonk deduces that the world will end in 101 years. Paulus laughs at him; the Prime Minister's Advisors laugh at him; Prime Minister Stalk wants proof, proof more easily digestible than screeds of indigiestible calclulations...and the only acceptable proof lies in the very future that is about to end.

Plonk ruminates. Concepts of machine and time come fortuitously together...of course! A time machine is required, to bring proof back from the future! Dr Plonk sets about inventing one.
