      A 71-year-old man is living out the tag end of a rotten life in poverty. Glarney Fered is a systems analyst and a blackbelt in the self defense art of Loro. He is a very good systems analyst and can defeat men half his age in hand combat. However neither skill is much use to a 71-year-old man. However, Glarney is hired as a bodyguard for a religious figure. They search the West coast city of Alvero, just two old men seeking a mysterious scroll. As the search goes on, Glarney thinks and fights his way through a gritty, inner-city environment. As they close in on the location of the mysterious scroll, Glarney comes to realize that his client will kill Glarney once the scroll has been obtained and Glarney is no longer needed.
    Since his client knows where Glarney lives, Glarney has no choice but to lead the religious figure to the scroll. He and his client unsuccessfully try to steal the scroll from the temple where it is hidden. Glarney tries to escape but is caught and has to then kill his client in a fight of legend. Glarney not only kills his client in self defence, in the process, he eats the client's life force. He then thinks to just live out his life in a little bit of comfort. However, Glarney finds himself growing a bit younger. He then has to again fight for his life against bandits and again becomes a bit younger. He realizes that he can continue to grow younger if he can just obtain more life force. Glarney has his second chance!
