Synopsis / Plot
Four strangers charter Jack Bonner’s boat and hire him to take them diving off the coast of Florida. They retrieve what they say are giant sea anenomes out of the ocean. But Jack discovers that his mysterious employers are really aliens, beings of light energy encased in flesh-like skins. They have come from Antares to rescue several of their people left behind when Atlantis sank. They Antareans have rented a house and use the bathhouse pool there to store the cocoons. When several old people from the neighbouring retirement home sneak in to use the pool, they suddenly find themselves being rejuvenated by the cocoons.
