Overview
It's 1937 and a young boy named, Johnny Dawson, who lives in a small town in Indiana, possesses something he doesn't know he has; it's something the Nazis desperately want in order to conquer the world. So, the Nazis send Count Victor Zarnoff, the World's Greatest Hypnotist and Ring Master of the Count Victor Zarnoff World Famous Circus, along with his henchman, Boris Landvil, the World's Strongest Clown, who has brought his Army of clowns, and Doctor Adolf Kleinmann, who brought his six Doberman Pinschers. All of them are intent on getting what Johnny Dawson doesn't know he has. Fortunately, Johnny Dawson is going to have a witch, the World's Greatest Knife Thrower, and her father, the World's Foremost Authority on Time Travel, as allies. With their help, he'll be able to send Zarnoff and his cohorts into a fifty year time vacuum. But those fifty years have come and gone, and now Count Zarnoff, along with his cohorts, are back and they're closing in on John Dawson. So he's going to have to disappear. But before he does, he'll need to tell his Grandson, Tommy Dawson, The Story (his story), because Tommy will need to know what happened during that July in 1937, in that small town in Indiana, because he's going to have to find that Time Machine and destroy it, before Count Zarnoff gets his hands on it and changes History.
Description
It's simple, really. You take a small town in Indiana, make it an excruciatingly hot and humid Wednesday in late July, of 1937, add a young boy named Johnny Dawson; give him something he doesn't know he has; make it something the Nazis desperately need in order to conquer the World, and you'll have The Story: John Dawson's story. He'll be chased. He'll be captured. But, with the help of a witch, and the World's Greatest Knife Thrower, and her father, the World's Foremost Authority on Time Travel, Johnny will escape and use a Time Machine to send his Nazis pursuers into a time vacuum for fifty years. Now, those fifty years have come and gone. The Nazis are back. They want John Dawson and the Time Machine. They want to use it to turn back the clock to 1937 and then rewrite the course of History. Realizing the Nazis have discovered where he lives, John Dawson knows he needs to disappear. But before he does, he also knows he has to share The Story (his story) with his grandson, Tommy Dawson. He needs Tommy to know what happened back then, because Tommy is going to have to find that Time Machine and destroy it. Destroying it was something John Dawson could have done, should have done, but didn't do.
