Portal Girl & Mr. Yesterday
a sci-fi drama digital series
- in development -
a teenage mutant love story
Set in an industrial port town in 1996, this sci-fi drama series follows teen Veronica - a sardonic, weed-smoking grunge kid - who uses her mutant powers of portal creation to break and enter. After stealing whatever she can carry, she hocks it all to buy weed and get high.
Until one day she happens across Chase, a self-confessed hip-hop tragic, and extremely hungover. The two misfits begin a fiery drug- and alcohol-fuelled romance, leading to Veronica’s discovery of Chase’s own mutant power - the ability to time travel backwards by a single day when blackout drunk. Unfortunately for Chase, being an alcoholic has meant he has been time-looping for a few months now. Veronica sees this as an opportunity to continue her hedonistic slacker lifestyle without consequence, that is until she discovers what it is Chase is running from. Veronica enlists the help of her friends to break the time travel loop so that Chase can escape his heartache, only to discover that he, and their relationship, might be too far gone from saving.
Portal Girl & Mr. Yesterday is a story about destructive relationships, saving yourself before you can save another, and the inconsequential 90’s rivalry between grunge kids and homies.
