George is a British actor who has completed months of intensive radiation and chemotherapy for a massive throat tumor caused by the HPV virus. George watches the stage show that is - or was - his life start to slip away: the roles he’s played, the disease, the treatment, his debilitating tracheotomy, and those poor souls in the chemo ward who never made it out, alive.

Thanks to massive morphine treatments, George thinks he’s dead – or at least his life is starting to look that way. Left alone with his mother-in-law (who’s addicted to online shopping), a pet Beetle named Prince Hal, and the ghost of his dead brother, when his wife is rushed to the hospital herself, Geroge learns that grotesqueness and beauty co-exist in every moment and how to live in the world we create for ourselves.
