Modern day: An elderly gentleman has a sudden heart attack and dies while out to breakfast with his oldest son. He finds himself on an isolated beach where he is soon visited by a host of people representing different periods in his life. They include, the person he was nicest to, the person he was the cruelest to, the person who was saved by his actions, the person who died because of a choice he had made and the person he loved the most. There, he faces demons and closes chapters as he waits for his journey home.
