A film about the thin line between life and death.

Only a year ago Neil Platt was a healthy young man who recently became a father, and now he is paralysed from neck down. Knowing that he is only left with a few months and that soon he will lose the ability to speak, Neil writes a letter to his son Oscar. He writes down his memories, impressions on love, friends and motorcycle rides. He is facing his motor neurone disease with an incredible dose of humour and honesty, while the blog he writes during his last days touches many hearts.
