Wilford, Don and Hume are three old-timers who sneak out of their retirement home to swim in the large pool on an abandoned estate next door.

Soon they begin to feel curiously younger and discover strange pods on the floor of the pool.

The pods are alien cocoons being pulled from the ocean by a team of extra-terrestrials in human form led by Walter.

Walter explains to the seniors that energy from the cocoons in the pool is restoring their youth.

The aliens agree to let them swim in secret, but of course they can't keep it to themselves and soon the pool is swarming with retirees.
