Synopsis: Jonah, a depressed, middle-aged man checks into a boutique hotel, with the intention of killing himself the next day. On the way to his room, he meets a woman, named Zoe. She is cute, quirky, and Russian. Zoe wants a drinking partner. She coaxes Jonah out of his room and into the hotel lounge, where they get drunk on sake, and play 'Truth or Dare'. He confesses to her about his plan to take his life and she tells him that, if this is his last night on earth, they need to make the most of it. They skinny-dip, kiss, and smoke a joint on the roof of the hotel. Zoe tells Jonah about her troubled past in post-communist Russia. Through Zoe, Jonah learns to be vulnerable, to trust, to live in the moment. In the end, Jonah must choose to follow through with his plan or choose life.
