AbstractHistoryArchive Description

George and Wendy, an elderly couple, are unable to enjoy their retirement thanks to Wendy's arthritis and George's asthma. They decide to spend all of their savings on an experimental treatment that restores their bodies to middle age condition. Physically fit and healthy, they apply for an old age pension as they slowly run out of money - only to find that the government has declared them to be of working age again.
