Phil is an ex-senior police chief enjoying a comfortable if boring retirement, and Ken is a divorcee and ex-special forces vet who feels similarly at sea. Phil and Ken were teenage sweethearts and despite life having moved on, they have never quite managed to forget each other.
Cut to a friend's funeral many years later where Phil and Ken, along with a gang of old friends, are reunited. At the wake, with nostalgia and booze flowing in equal measure, talk soon takes a meditative turn and the group discuss what an 'ideal' death might look like. The gang make a drunken pact: rather than let each other suffer a slow and dreadful decline, they will step in and engineer a dignified death. In short, they will help each other die when the time is right. Because that, they all agree, is a sign of Truelove. But what starts out as a fanciful idea soon morphs into shocking reality....

However, they come from very different backgrounds and their personal motivations and emotional lives outside the police force differ as a result.
