    Thanks for the suggestions. I think 2 has my interest right now.

    Time Inn is a prison where the inmates are subjected to hyper-metabolism, so they age at a relatively higher rate. The offer is that you get out in less actual time, so you can see your family, but you’re old when you get out and thus, supposedly less dangerous. Of course, there’s always a chance you die from old age or the treatment might be inherently dangerous.

    But, you’re ten years older than your wife. You look old enough to be your kid’s grandfather.

    Now I’m trying to figure out what the backstory is: is this some sort of medical experiment? If so, why?
