A darkly comic satire in which Stuart Gray, faced with the prospect of only having a few months left to live, finds that living out his final days as happily as possible might not be as simple as he would have hoped.
Plunged into an existential crisis following the death of his mother, Stuart becomes convinced that he is terminally ill, and a visit to the doctors seems to confirm his fears.
He sets out to achieve his aim of a happy death, however, the harder he tries the further away he seems to get from it.
How far is he willing to go to achieve his goal?
