‘Back To The Future’ Summary

In Back To The Future, Marty McFly is your typical ’80s American teenager. After his friend and mentor, Dr. Emmett Brown accidentally sends him back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean time machine, things get heavy. Once there, Marty accidentally runs into his parents—interrupting the first time they met. Now, he must get his parents to meet, fall in love, and kiss at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance or never be born. Furthermore, Marty must do this by 10:04 p.m. next Saturday night when a bolt of lightning will strike the clock tower; generating the 1.21 gigawatts of power necessary to propel him back to the future!

I didn’t get the wealth so much. Maybe because they are all still living together in the same exact house.
If he would’ve came back and they were living in a mansion and the brother and sister were living in penthouses, maybe that would’ve stood out more to me.
I just see them as being more productive and living up to their true potential.

That’s very true, and a good point we did not bring up.
