Alfred Smith built a Hollywood blockbuster empire.
Al’s also reached the end of his lifespan. Fortunately, Al is sought out by a very eager pharmaceutical salesman peddling a “Fountain of Youth” nano-tech drug treatment.
For this experimental medicine, Al must agree to the pharmaceutical salesman’s movie deal. Al then awakens with his clock reset, transformed into a young man again. But in this form he doesn’t actually exist. Al becomes completely reliant upon the pharmaceutical salesman — now a movie director — to secure his identity as his own son.
Glitches in the treatment threaten Al such that he cannot be certain if brain damage has set in or if he’s now entered the realm of the supernatural.
