An aimless bumbler is pushed into service during World War II and later winds up in a German prison camp known as Slaughterhouse 5 . But his life takes a strange turn when the ties that bind him to normal time and space loosen. Flipping from the war to an extraterrial zoo, the hapless hero sees different phases of his life but he never quite understands what is expected from him.
An acclaimed screen adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's famous novel. Suburban Everyman Billy Pilgrim comes "unstuck in time" and is hurled back and forth through his own past and future--from the horrors of the Dresden fireboming to a human "zoo" on the planet Trafalmadore.
Additional cast: Gary Waynesmith (Billy Pilgrim's son-in-law), Stan Gottlieb (Hobo), and Nick Belle (Soldier).
