The third generation of Dellambres try to perfect their grandfather's teleportation device. The two grandsons, tired of the experiments, want to have lives and families of their own. And the eldest brother, meeting a strange and mysterious woman, ends up marrying her within a week. He takes his bride back to his Montreal estate and we soon learn both of their hidden secrets. She recently escaped from a mental institution ad he is suffering from a strange aging condition brought on by the teleportation experiments. Unless he takes a serum he will quickly age and die (having the lifespan of a fly). There's also a bunch of half-human creatures his family keeps locked up in a nearby barn, failed experiments.
