In Time

Question: How did Sylas get back to Dayton with only 30 minutes after the crash?

Question: We see in the movie that the time is like money but where is the "time" generated?


Chosen answer: When they turn 25, their built-in clock starts counting down from 1 year. Since time is the currency, they must then work and contribute to the economy, in order to earn time and survive. The government gives that one year of time to each person, as both a population control measure (if they don't work and earn, they'll die) and an economic incentive.
