After history professor John Oldman (David Lee Smith) unexpectedly resigns from his university, startled colleagues impulsively invite themselves to his home, pressing him for an explanation. They’re shocked to hear his reason for premature retirement: John claims he is immortal, and cannot stay in one place for more than 10 years without his secret being discovered. Tempers rise as John's fellow professors attempt to poke holes in his story, and what started out as a friendly gathering soon builds to an unexpected and shattering climax.
