Director Heather Leach documents her battle with thyroid disease and cancer, in a film she began making six days after receiving her initial diagnosis. She returns from London to her home town of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, but finds herself becoming increasingly reliant on her relatives as her health declines over the subsequent three years. As Heather confronts both her own mortality and a growing dependence on others, she also reassesses the things that matter most to her, and begins to develop a new attitude to life and death.
