Saving Amelia

Film Overview: When two contentious sisters stumble upon an old two-way radio as they explore their attic while stuck at home, they realize it can mysteriously communicate with the past.

It becomes a race against time to help save her, but can they overcome their own quarrels in order to change the course of history forever.
