More info:  Plot Synopsis from the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) --

Emmy Coer, a computer genius, devises a method of communicating with the
past by tapping into undying information waves. She manages to reach the
world of Ada Lovelace, founder of the idea of a computer language and
proponent of the possibilities of the "difference engine." Ada's ideas were
stifled and unfulfilled because of the reality of life as a woman in the
eighteenth century. Emmy has a plan to defeat death and the past using her
own DNA as a communicative agent to the past, bringing Ada to the present.
But what are the possible ramifications?
