Those capable of thought have been known to overdo it.
Depression, drugs, and a splintering family drive George Barham, a high school senior, to throw himself in front of a bus. Hector Cunningham, seventy-three, only just saves him and is furious with George for nearly ruining a bus driver’s life. However, Hector was coincidentally on his way to steal an airplane and kill himself, albeit in a more “responsible” manner.
Together the two embark on a series of very accidental adventures across the Americas in search of an end to their lives, only to find death more elusive than previously imagined. George and Hector soon discover friendship and family in the unlikeliest of places and come to see that many of the beautiful and terrible things in the world did not become so overnight.
