In the near future, rapid aging disease rips through the planet, infecting more than half the population and dividing them into two groups: "cleans" and "infecteds." Once infected, you age one year every day unless you take a daily dose of Anzanol, the only drug that can slow the process. When Ruth Hennessey (Polly Shannon) becomes pregnant by her infected husband, she fears that her baby will be afflicted as well. As her husband dies, he tells her that he was close to finding a cure. His final words send her on a journey to save her unborn baby and, in turn, the rest of the population. Along the way, the man in charge of creating Anzanol will stop at nothing, even murder, to keep his empire thriving.
