Six single, semi-retired, 'older' women are inseparable friends. But their lives start to go haywire when mischievous Rosie submits her friend's names to an ad soliciting 'Mail Order Brides for Farmers & Miners - Distant Locations.' A few weeks later, as the six women are driving along a lonely beach road, their vehicle suddenly begins to shake, the sky grows dark, an eerie light envelops the van, and ZAP -- it's gone! Exactly three years later, the van reappears on the same road. But this time, the women appear to be thirty years younger -- and they're all pregnant! The 'distant locations' advertised were, in fact, elsewhere in our galaxy. A process, required for deep space travel, has somehow reversed their aging. They are happy with their new lives. However, a universal law requires that babies of 'mixed-mating' be born on the mother's home planet, forcing their return. But as they re-adapt to life on earth, surprises and problems arise as they're faced with a media circus, doctors, nurses, police, priests, and nuns, not to mention their new humanoid mates.
