Synopsis: At breakneck speed, secret agent Roy Miller sends the ordinary-seeming June Havens’ life on a screeching detour.
June boarded a plane in Wichita, Kansas and began chatting up her charming, mysterious seatmate — Roy.
Soon after, everything changed. Suddenly, the plane was hurtling into a cornfield without any living crew or passengers.
Without even time to catch her breath, June finds herself being pursued around the globe — dodging bullets in Boston, leaping rooftops in Austria, and running from bulls in Seville — all in the company of a potentially duplicitous, possibly unstable yet decidedly alluring secret agent, at the centre of a life-or-death adventure that will push these two people from opposite worlds to do the one thing they’ve long avoided trust.
Now, nothing will be the same again for them, as this exceptional secret operative finds himself undone by ordinary love and this everyday woman finds herself capable of the most extraordinary things she could imagine.

Jim, his partner of sixteen years, died in a car accident eight months earlier when he was visiting with family. Jim’s family were not going to tell George of the death or accident, let alone allow him to attend the funeral.
On this day, George has decided to get his affairs in order before he commits suicide that evening. As he routinely and fastidiously prepares for the suicide and post suicide, George reminisces about his life with Jim.
But George spends this day with various people, who see a man sadder than usual and who affect his own thoughts about what he is going to do. That is where the movie begins to pick up, as George interacts with a host of people.
