Martin Morgan says goodbye to his family for what he believes to be the last time. A diagnosis of cancer in its last stages has left him with two choices: to tell his family and let them care for him in his last days, or to not tell his family and instead take a last trip to the mountains where he'll go to die.
Martin chooses the latter. Having booked into a hotel in the Scottish Highlands, he sets out for one last climb.
Following an amiable cup of tea and biscuits with a group of descending climbers on the way, he finally reaches the summit.
Martin's last moments on earth are disturbed by a commotion - and instead of meeting death, Martin meets Francis; a meeting which will change Martin's life for ever, and the lives of his loved ones.
