Escape in Time is a tale of discovery, hope and liberation. Set in Northern California's beautiful Humboldt County, the story is told through the eyes of Jon, a janitor at Humboldt State University. A recluse from society, Jon lives isolated from the world until one night... He begins to dream of violent robberies fifty years in the past... too vivid to be dreams. Another reality unfolds before him. In his dreams he becomes John Anglin, a bank robber and prisoner on Alcatraz Island in 1962.
