During his time as a P.O.W.– for reasons unexplained – he becomes “unstuck in time” and is warped to different periods of his life at the blink of an eye, from his married years after the war, to the day he dies, to the night he gets abducted by aliens, all the while figuring out what he considers to be the important things in life.
