Summary
When James Kreider receives the devastating news his life is being cut short with cancer, he is immediately filled with shock and disbelief. At 60 years, Jim is too young to die and believes he has a whole life ahead of him. When the reality of his impending demise sinks in, Jim methodically prepares for his final days, including trying to heal old wounds. With a dash of life's regrets and unfinished business, Jim's hours are spent pondering the legacy he will leave for his friends and children. In preparing for the end, Jim selects five individuals to represent his life at the funeral service. This group includes Jim's boss, his personal physician, a neighbor, the pastor of his church, and a woman whom Jim was involved with in a long-term affair. None of the individuals know each other or why they were chosen. Summoned to the office of Jim's attorney, the representatives disclose emotions and information few individuals want to hear. Reluctantly, they agree to share every facet of their friend. Jim's story not only transforms the five representatives but alters the lives of the funeral guests. They realize the value of one's life is less about the length of time, but rather how we touched other people through our actions and words
