Description:
  As Joel and Alice approach their golden years, they embark into a brand new world together: a world where their aging selves can be traded in for the bodies of younger strangers, and their love can live on forever. Using most of their life savings, the two schedule their “Renewal” procedures. Alice goes first, transplanting her mind, soul, and personality into a 25-year-old body.

Eagerly awaiting Joel’s procedure a week later, the two begin to make plans and explore their Renewed lives together. Alice’s transformation is exciting and difficult, for both of them. She is elated by her newfound energy and zest for life, but confused and disoriented by a strange body and a new community that she must learn to negotiate.

Joel struggles to keep up with his now-young wife, finding comfort in the idea that all these growing pains are only a temporary setback until his own Renewal. But, when medical complications make it impossible for him to undergo the procedure — leaving him imprisoned inside his aging body — he must learn to navigate his relationship with Alice in a world that has left the elderly far behind.

Their social group only seems to deepen the rift that has started to grow between them. Their best friends, Stanley and Lorraine, underwent the procedure years before, and are already saving up for their next. These days, everyone seems desperate for the vacuous escape of greater and greater newness.
