Appalled at what his life has become, Max decides to take his own life with a bullet. But he wants to both: be remembered, and to go out in his own way. To do so in style. So he gets his friend young filmmaker Bud to film his last 24 hours among the living, asking him 'not to stop filming no matter what happens'.

He works through his final hours exhibiting the full range of what humans are capable of; from absolute heroism to unadulterated madness, with moments of kindness and epiphanies scattered throughout. The final crescendo is supposed to be a confrontation with his loathed boss and his poisonous ex-wife, and then to bring the curtain down. Yet can one act of kindness by a stranger stop a bullet?
