Two aging men from different backgrounds facing their own mortality escape from a cancer ward with a view to executing a bucket list of things to do before death.

Big-business billionaire Edward Cole and mechanic Carter Chambers, two old men nearing the end of their lives as bedmates in a cancer ward, decide to break out of their hospital confines and set out on a road trip together. Their mutual goal -- to check off items on a bucket list before their passing -- brings the pair together as unlikely friends and confidants as they slowly learn to make peace with the end.
