Middle-aged Michael (Mark Duplass) receives a diagnosis of terminal stomach cancer and plans to get medication to end his life. This upsets his older neighbor Andy (Ray Romano), as they are each other’s best (and only) friend and escape from their menial jobs. Andy encourages Michael to try to fight the cancer, but Michael refuses to prolong any suffering. As per Michael’s wishes, the two make pizzas together, watch kung-fu movies and play Paddleton, a game the two made up together. Andy promises to finally tell him a rousing halftime speech that he has been working on in secret. Andy is reluctant to help Michael end his own life, but agrees to join him on a road trip to the closest pharmacy that will fill the prescription, which is six hours away, discussing wishes and visiting an ostrich farm on the way. They pick up Michael’s prescription and check into a hotel, where they are mistaken for a gay couple. The two go to a karaoke bar, where a nervous Andy finally delivers his halftime speech in the bathroom mirror before helping Michael perform a scene from their favorite kung-fu movie. The two later break hotel rules by using a jacuzzi after-hours while drinking. They are caught by the hotel owner, who ends up joining them and flirts with Andy, who becomes uncomfortable after she mentions her deceased husband, whom she believes is “all around her.” Andy wakes up the next morning to find Michael gone with his medication (which Andy has kept in a drugstore safe) and panics, running all over the town to try to find him, only to discover him in the hotel lobby, waiting to meet up for breakfast. Andy tries to keep hold of the medication, until an annoyed Michael forces him to come to terms with the fact that he is dying, and that Andy needs to respect his wishes. The two drive back to Michael’s apartment, where his condition quickly deteriorates. Michael reveals that he used to be married, but quickly felt uncomfortable in the marriage; however, he felt a sense of belonging with Andy as soon as they met. They discuss Andy’s halftime speech (which Michael has already heard through the apartment’s vents) and the possibility of an afterlife where Michael could haunt Andy. With Michael ready to die, they prepare his final medication. After a brief moment of fear, Michael dies peacefully in his own bed after the two affirm their love for each other, leaving Andy devastated. Some time later, Andy encounters a single mother and her son moving into Michael’s old apartment. He reassures them that they have the best apartment in the complex and explains the game of Paddleton to the son. Promising to give him a rousing halftime speech if he ever needs it, Andy returns to his own apartment with a smile.
