In the future, two federal agents and an android investigate a temporal anomaly next to Polaris, the North Star. In the past, the Captain of a royal ship deals with the mutiny of his crew. When stakes rise for both timelines, faiths are tested and loyalties are strained. Just when it seems as though the universe has abandoned everyone, the beautifully circular nature of time is revealed. Playfully sad and desperately hopeful, The Polaris Dilemma offers the possibilities of questions and friendships that can transcend time and space.
