Second Chances is a film about a group of scientists who develop a serum that, when injected into lab rats, makes them become younger in age. Staff members from a rival laboratory break into the compound in an attempt to steal the serum and the alarm is triggered, alerting the scientist of an intrusion. Three of the scientists escape with a lab rat and the serum. After reaching safety, the group decides to test it on themselves and the results are disastrous as they regress to a pre-adolescent age. Now they must find a way to get back to their lab to retrieve the antidote without being caught.
