Richard Carpenter has just been told by his doctor that he has cancer and that it will kill him within one year's time. His faulty DNA is traced back to his alcoholic grandfather who was exposed to numerous noxious chemicals while working on the U.S. Navy's first submarines.
Richard is hired by Brookhaven National Laboratory to work on a top secret project that involves time travel. Given the opportunity, Richard volunteers to be the test subject sent back into the past. His only stipulation is they send him back to 1899 to meet his grandfather. Richard recognizes that this may be the only chance he has to alter his defective DNA and save his life.
