This synopsis report prepared by Tracey Ray
A LA cop, who is close to retirement, and his wild partner are at a crime scene. A ‘boy', a spiteful, vengeful and sadistic maniac, controls an evil giants (Tick Tock) through mind control, and he can even stop time itself. The young man (though the mouth of the monster) gives him a warning; he has only 24 hours left before the boy kills him! The story is all about that 24 hours.
