All right,

We are leaving the flatlands

and we are heading up

towards the mountain top,

which I'll show you right here.

Way up there.

I'm not sure who I'm meeting.

The ad said $1,000 for the day.

Filming services.

Discretion is appreciated,

whatever that means.

So, here's a thought:

What if this is just

some 40-something

who's sitting alone

in her apartment

waiting for some young

handsome boy to come up the hill

and give rubdowns, money,

and whisper sweet nothings?

It's just a thought.

Cute little lake.

Cute little town.

This is promising.

This is it.

A yellow door.



No answer and no voicemail,

so that's good.


Okay, so...

I think it's smarter

if I wait in the car.

You know, just...

I don't think

this guy's showing up.

Which is too...


Oh, I'm sorry,

I didn't mean to scare you.

Oh, it's okay.

It's okay.

I'm assuming you're Aaron?


I'm Aaron.

- Nice to meet you.

- Josef.

Oh, my God.

Oh, my God.

- This is gonna be a good day.

- Yeah.

You have a really nice,

kind face.

- Thank you.

- All right.

- Come on.

- Okay.

I feel like we should just

do this right now

because at the end of the day

it's gonna be normal,

so let me just.

Oh. Okay.

Trust me, that's not gonna

be anything weird at all.

Never get used to those stairs.

All right.

So, welcome.

This is our

family vacation home.

A lot of special memories.

Can see, if you check out

these paintings,

I made these with my dad

when I was younger.

So, I'm sure

you're anxious to get started...

- Yeah.

- On all this.


Let's get you over here.

I am a cancer survivor.

I had cancer in the liver,

spread to the lungs.

So, pretty bad.

They gave me the chemo.

I knocked it out.

Really, it was...

Went into remission immediately.

It was...

t was pretty incredible.

Unfortunately, two months ago,

I started getting

these dizzy spells and

some... some sort of

weird cognitive misfirings.

I went back in

to see the doctor.

Brain tumor

size of a baseball here.

- Oh, no.

- That's inoperable.

Um, so they gave me about

two to three months to live.

I'm hoping I beat it, you know?

And the power

of positive thinking.


You know, who knows?

But in case I don't,

I'm married.

My beautiful wife, Angela,

of six years,

is pregnant

with our first child.

Hi, Buddy.

We're calling it Buddy.

Um, and have you ever

seen the film My Life?


It's a beautiful,

beautiful film.

Michael Keaton gets cancer

in the film,

and he makes a video diary

of himself for his unborn son.

Oh, okay.


Yeah, you can see.

So, our job today

is to keep that camera rolling,

as we discussed,

and I just

want you to walk with me.

I don't know

exactly what I'm gonna do.

I want you to document me,

how I am.

I don't need to glorify me

or make me seem cool

or anything other

than what I am,

so, Buddy, you can see me

for the man I was.

And, um...

I hope you're up for it.

- Okay.

- Yeah?

Yeah. Yeah.

Let's do it.

I thought you

were gonna run away.



This is for you.

- Oh, that's all right.

- No, no, no, no.

Take the whole thing.

This is, uh...

this is no longer

a business transaction, okay?


This is a partnership,

and this is a journey

into the heart,

and I'm real glad

it's you coming with me.

I think we're gonna do great.

You ready for this?

- Okay, let's do it.

- All right.

I'm gonna go get in the tub.

In the tub?

Yeah, come on up.

It's okay.

Come on.

Oh, sorry.

- It's okay.

- Okay?

Yeah, yeah.

We're... we're gonna go

a lot deeper places than this.

- Okay? You all right?

- Yeah.

- You sure?

- Yep.


You sure you're not hungry?

- You want a sandwich or anything?

- No, I'm okay... I'm okay.

All right, maybe when we get

out of the tub.

I'm getting in the tub.

You're not getting in the tub.

- Okay.

- Okay?

- Okay.

- All right, get comfortable.


- Okay, you rolling?

- Yep.

Just checking.

I knew you were.

All right, Buddy.

Welcome to your first tubby.

When I was your age,

I used to take tubbies

with my dad.

We'd call 'em tubby time,

and it was pretty much

the greatest time of the day.

So since you and I might not

get to do a tubby together,

I thought we would have

our first tubby right here.

You ready?


All right.

Now, let's get

those tootsies wet.

You ready?

Get those tootsies.


Oh, ooh, it tickles, doesn't it?

Oh, stinker.



Ooh, this one

actually smells pretty good.

I know, it's fun, isn't it?

I know.


Just lean back

and close your eyes.

A little shampoo.

A massage rub.




Now is my favorite part.

We're just gonna lay back.

Oh, Buddy.

Oh, yeah.

Ooh, ooh.

Ooh, you like the fire?


You just stay here.

We'll watch the fire.

You and me.


I love you so much.

Can't stop thinking about it,



Two to three months.

Most of which I will either be

in pain,

or at the very least sad.

I mean, look at this scene.

It's a tubby scene.

It's supposed to be fun.

It's not supposed to be sad,

you know?

I just can't help thinking,

"Why wait?"

You know?

'Cause I could just

end it right now.

I could, you know.






Oh, man, I'm sorry.

Oh, man,

that was... that was a joke.

It was supposed to be a joke.

I'm so sorry.

That was a bad joke.


I've got a weird sense
