Jonathan Younger (Donald Sutherland) is like a bird of paradise, showing off in front of his women customers. His white suit takes on the neon colors of his self storage facility in order to attract his prey, the way some animals attract insects.

He is a very charming man. He also lives in a dream world where work is something that never applies to him. Consequently, the moderate success of the Younger Self Storage company he owns is entirely down to his efficient but neglected wife, Penny (Lolita Davidovich). Penny’s main concern are the women customers, who are regularly “entertained” by her husband in the room above the office. It is here that Jonathan keeps his prize possession, a grand old Wurlitzer organ - a seduction technique which rarely fails to impress. After a fight with Penny, Jonathan whisks a very shapely old friend of Penny’s upstairs for a love making session. Witnessing his infidelity in the office monitor is too much for his wife, and she dies of a heart attack. When their son Winston (Brendan Fraser) returns from school in England to join the company, he is quick to realize that his inexperience and his fathers disinterest will ruin them. Winston’s concern really takes hold when it becomes obvious that his despondent father is beginning to have visions of his dead wife. He can hear her, he can see her, but he can’t touch her and each time she appears she grows more and more beautiful and younger and younger and Jonathan slowly but surely, falls in love with her all over again.wp805984d5.jpg
