The main twist in this suspense drama, about a lady assistant D.A. (Lauren Hutton) who stumbles onto a sinister plot involving unethical doctor James Farentino's youth-prolonging research at the local hospital, is the casting, in their regular roles, of several members of the daytime drama "Guiding Light". For continuity, Ben Murphy, as a local medical examiner who happens to be Hutton's boyfriend, made several appearances in the part on "Guiding Light" itself prior to the film's premiere.
