Summary :

When an old lady accidentally leaves a cat in a freezer, only to watch it thaw out and walk around as if nothing had happened, the newspapers and media outlets go crazy with the amazing story. Soon, the enterprising Zeritsky brothers realize that by freezing a human in much the same way, albeit with more advanced equipment, they can make money off of people wanting to live to get a glimpse of the distant future.

Charging high prices, they quickly become rich. Their most prolific customers however, turn out to be underworld and crime figures, looking to escape the present heat of the law. Heavy bribes keep law enforcement out of the brothers' business, and all goes well.

But the business thrives on making customers happy, doing quality work, for those same underworld figures would be very, very upset if they woke up in the wrong time, or for the wrong reasons...
