Two elderly World War II buddies are living - and dying - together in their small home. One becomes a patient where salvage-worthy, older attributes are combined with useable, younger body parts. He returns, unrecognized by the other.

An earlier version of the film featured a comical subplot about a virus being unleashed on the public. When the film's editing was almost finished, the AIDS epidemic had began, and writer/director Huckert felt it may be misinterpreted as disrespectful, so the subplot was removed, resulting in the many "cutting room floor" credit listings for actors whose performances were lost from the final cut.

I used to think when I got old enough to drink I'd be really living. And then I thought when I had a woman... boy, that'd be it! Well, it looks like death's right up there with livin' these days. Pretty soon, time's all gone. And there ya are eyeball to eyeball with the thing. And you still can't make heads or tails out of... out of anything.
