Opening narration[edit]


After a semi-successful test—a patient is revived, but immediately begins a painful deterioration—Dr. Houghton is assaulted and killed in a robbery attempt. He is revived believing that he has only a few days to live. Fearing that he has neglected his wife, he tries at first to make up for it by showering her with attention and affection—but his resentment toward the man who murdered him takes over. Certain that he will die soon, he takes revenge on the robber—only to find out later that he will live. He is arrested later that day on murder charges.
