London , 1893. Science fiction writer Herbert Wells believes that society will become utopian in the future. He also believes in the ability to travel in time and manages to build a time machine , which he shows to his skeptical friends, including surgeon John Leslie Stevenson. No one knows that the doctor is known among the people as ... Jack the Ripper . Running away from the police, Stevenson experiences the effect of a new invention and is transferred to the future. Wells also follows in order to return the Ripper and transfer it into the hands of the law.
