Time relativity is the theory that time is not some absolute and fixed background to the universe as was widely supposed before Einstein, but is in fact a flexible part of spacetime.
This means that not everybody may perceive the passage of time in the same way.
For instance you would think that speed does not affect time, but infact under relativity it does - a clock orbiting the earth will experience the passage of slightly less time than you would on earth, in other words relative to the frame of reference that is on the surface of the earth, the clock in orbit experiences the passage of less time - and that is time relativity in real life for you, not just science fiction but science fact.
