It's 2027, suburban Malaga, Western Australia.  Ex-cop Aloysius 'Spider' Webb is working as a time-machine repairman - and people are crazy about time travel.  Spider is getting on okay (if you put to one side his failed marriage and dead-end career) until he discovers the mutilated body of a woman in a second-hand time machine.  What starts out as just another repair job on a faulty time machine becomes a battle for what lies at the very End of Time.
