History professor John Oldman suddenly resigns from the University. His startled colleagues demand an explanation. But they're shocked to hear his reason for leaving. John claims he is 14,000 years old and that he must move on every ten years to prevent his secret being discovered. Tempers rise and emotions ﬂow as John’s fellow professors attempt to poke holes in his story. What starts out as a friendly gathering soon builds to an unexpected and shattering climax.
