In a not so distant dystopian future Adam escapes from poor part of Warsaw to the New City. With a help of a secret society Adam gets a flat in an old building and finds a job a cleaner. He falls in love with Goria, a beautiful employee in the HR department, but she doesn’t treat him seriously.

In his flat Adam finds a radio from the 1950’s that broadcasts the beautiful music from the past. The radio also emits the Theta waves that facilitate time travel. Adam starts to experiment with the Theta waves and he gets stuck in the past. When he doesn’t show up for work Goria – realizing that she has lost true love – starts to look for him in the past.

“Polish sci-fi thriller The Man With Magic Box reverberates with myriad influences from Terry Gilliam and Steven Spielberg to Andrei Tarkovsky.” - Laurence Boyce, Screen Daily
