Seventeen-year-old Zak Gibbs knows how to work the system. With a little creativity, an old, thrown-out typewriter can become a "Crash Proof Word Processor" and get him $25 closer to driving his dream car. But when notices a watch in a junk box from his physicist father's workbench, he has no idea what a real treasure he's found.
At the push the timepiece sends him into "hypertime," a state of super-fast movement that makes everyone else appear frozen. Zak has fun with his new ability to play pranks without being seen and impress his aloof crush, Francesca. But the situation soon turns serious when his father is kidnapped by the ruthless creators of the top secret device. Now Zak's battling the clock to protect his family...and save the world from an invisible foe.
