James wants to make the most of this life – what’s left of it. He invites his three closest friends to join him on a road trip to his favourite place in the world. Like many an impulsive group holiday, however, the undertaking proves fraught with practical difficulties, surreal encounters and emotionally ravaging revelations. For his best friend Miles, the trip means wrestling with the gloomy reality that the ones he loves tend to die. For Davy it’s about being there for James and holding the effort together – while for Bill it’s about running away from the mistakes he’s made and the comfortable trap that is his life. Each step of the journey is one step further from the past and to a brave new world where they learn what it means to live.
