Biologist Christopher Bacon returns from the New Guinea rainforests with a flower rumored to prevent aging. As he conducts his research on the flower's extract in his Boston lab, Chris finds that the test animals are not only rejuvenated, but they stop aging altogether. Soon, Chris finds himself tampering with nature, and the consequences are unimaginably horrific.
