Based on the play by N.J.Crisp, Ralph, a once-famous screenwriter, is in his seventies and terminally ill. He has two final missions: to be reconciled to his son, Michael, and, secretly, to ensure he is not a burden to his wife, Anna, as he goes, “into that good night”. But Ralph ruins all hopes of reconciliation when he picks a fight with Micheal’s girlfriend Cassie.
Later, alone, Ralph recieves the sinister and mysterious, “Visitor”, whose services he has hired to provide a painless ending to his life. But the Visitor plays a trick on him and 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.
