Ralph, a once famous writer is in his seventies and terminally ill. He has things to do before he dies: to be reconciled with his long-abandoned son, Michael, and secretly, to ensure he is not a burden to his devoted young wife, Anna, as he goes ‘into that good night.’ But Ralph ruins all hope of reconciliation when he picks a fight with Michael’s girlfriend, Cassie.
Later, alone, Ralph receives the sinister and mysterious “Visitor” whose services he has hired to provide a painless ending to his life. But the Visitor plays a devastating trick. Ralph ‘wakes up’ to face the damaged potential that life still holds for him and with his second chance he has a short window of opportunity to right some wrongs.
