The Old Man (Will Geer) runs a mysterious organization that offers new identities and lives to those who have enough cash to pay the price to attain their dreams. Arthur Hamilton (John Randolph) uses the services, and, after plastic surgery, he is turned into a "Second," appears to be 20 years younger, and is renamed Tony Wilson (now played by Rock Hudson). Off he goes to a California beach community as a swinging bachelor with a girlfriend, Nora (Salome Jens), and a butler, John (Wesley Addy). All goes well–until he learns that the people in his community are all "Seconds," and he is trapped in his new world.

A drifter, Nada (Roddy Piper), finds a special pair of sunglasses that allows him to see the "real" world. One such sight is that, supposedly, human beings are, in fact, aliens behind a massive plot to subdue the humans. Can he do something about it? A poor make-up job on the aliens is but one of the flaws of this film; however, it's good fun. From the mouth of our hero: "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum."
