A 1939 test pilot asks his best friend to use him as a guinea pig for a cryogenics experiment. Daniel McCormick wants to be frozen for a year so that he doesn't have to watch his love lying in a coma. The next thing Daniel knows is that he's been awoken in 1992. Written by
Time waits for no man but true love waits forever
Did You Know?
Someone knew Daniel was around somewhere. When an aging Daniel shows up at Harry's daughter's house she recognizes his name. As she never had seen him her only knowledge of him had to come from her mother, Harry's wife or Helen who knew Harry's wife and is pictured with Harry's daughter at age 2. When Helen came out of her coma she would have wondered where Daniel was. Even if they didn't know precisely that Daniel had gone cryogenic on them you would figure a vast search would have been conducted with Helen as a driving force his fiancee and childhood friend. As Daniel said she knew about the project and would have had the base thoroughly searched for Daniel. See more
