Idealistic doctoral graduates Bob (Dr. Robert E. Cornish), Louise and John plan their futures in pursuit of a formula to restore life to the dead. Bob and Louise wish to remain independent and pursue medical research free of corporate ties. John tries in vain to convince them that by joining him to work at Arnold Research Laboratories they could achieve more research in a year than they could in five as an independent research team. John leaves his friends for corporate pharmacology only to find the pace of his research is not progressing fast enough nor seems practical enough to suit Mr. Arnold. The final blow comes when he is told to turn his attention to creating a treated pig bristle brush to restore hair and prop up his bosses investments in pig processing. Disillusioned Dr. John Kendrick faces public ridicule as he promotes his theory to his peers and falls into a deep depression that costs him his private medical practice.

This film shows you that you can be the worst parent in the world and everything turns out okay as long as you can brings your kid's pets back to life. But not his mother.
After a head scratching beginning which goes on about some guy who brought a dog back to life, we get so see smug graduate Kendrick ditching his mates in order to join some corporation whom he believes will give him the dough in order for him to realise his life's dream, and that dream is conquering death. The thing is, business is business and when the company ditch him for spending too much (they offer him a job making hair restoring brushes instead) he goes a bit nuts, stops practising medicine, then sits around all day feeling sorry for himself.
You the audience instead should be feeling sorry for his son Danny. Now, Danny's a bright kid with a dog sidekick but when his mum kicks the bucket, his dad can't be bothered getting a job and therefore Danny's headed for the kid's home. He escapes and joins up with some kids, but life ain't going to be getting any better for Danny any time soon.
This film is bizarrely depressing due to Danny. His dad really thinks he's above any jobs and any time someone starts chewing his ears about facing reality he stares into space and goes on about conquering death (at one point referring to those gassed in the trenches in WW1 just wait a few years film!). So his dad lies about doing nothing while Danny is chased by the cops, has his dog arrested, and let's not forget he lost his mum. Where's the light? The end, as you'd imagine, is utterly ridiculous, and seems to involve real footage of some operation integrated into the film proper (Godfrey Ho must have watched this as a kid!).
