A sci-fi film you can enjoy even if you don’t like sci-fi. Three men (Don Ameche, Wilford Bromley, Hume Cronyn) from a group of elderly people who live in a retirement home use the swimming pool in the empty house next door. When a couple (Brian Dennehy and Tahnee Welch) rent the place, they agree to let the men continue to use the pool as long as they don’t disturb the mysterious cocoons that the couple store there. The pool has a rejuvenating effect on the three men.
