Goddess of Time, the latest indie by Gabe Rodríguez, is a bleak, meditative examination of the brutality of war and our treatment of veterans. The plot is unveiled through an original fantasy story combining heroism and the supernatural: Orysia Rozhenko (Dina Cataldi) is a tough New York cop, Ukrainian-born and Brooklyn-raised. Yet she is also disillusioned with her surroundings and has lost her drive, much to the chagrin of her hot-headed partner. But an encounter with a clairvoyant gypsy awakens something inside Rozhenko, and when trying to arrest a disabled miliatry veteran (Nate Steinwachs), she is led into a journey…not merely across time…but across realities.
