Aging hitman Leslie, a one-man euthanasia clinic with a good heart but a shaky hand, is not so lucky. His new boss at The Guild of Assassins is all about quotas, and Leslie has been reduced to searching suicide hotspots for potential clients to help him meet his target numbers. It’s a last-ditch attempt at delaying his enforced retirement for another year.

Following a chance encounter on a bridge, William realizes he could use some professional help. With so many attempts and zero success, it’s obvious an experienced, cold-blooded killer is exactly what William needs. After browsing through Leslie’s brochure, “Your Death... Your Way,” William settles on “quick and painless.” It’s not exactly the hero’s death he’d always dreamt of, but it’s all he can afford.

With the contract signed and the promise from Leslie of “no garroting,” William waits for the inevitable. However, with death guaranteed within a week (or his money back), William, for the first time in his life, feels a weight lifted off his shoulders and begins to rethink his decision. But a contract is a contract, as far as Leslie is concerned, and William isn’t going to get out of it that easily...
