Scott, who is already faced with a predatory female employer, a split from his girlfriend, and a desperate life-or-death need for cash to pay off Joey's gambling debts, reluctantly agrees to assist the terminally ill old man across the hall with his suicide.

Scott employs his friend Cozzo to build what Scott thinks is their only solution: an assisted-suicide machine. It's a deeply illicit and illegal situation about which they will have to keep very, very quiet.

But Cozzo, whose prying wife Debbie is a police officer, decides if he's going to take the risk, they should turn assisted suicide into a business.
