Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

A compulsive gambler diagnosed with terminal cancer vows to pack a lifetime's worth of experiences into his final days after winning big at the races. Rahul Sharma had been gambling for his entire life, but he's never picked the right horse -- at least until today. Realizing he's now set for life, Rahul proposes to his girlfriend, Nafisa, and collapses before she can answer. When medical tests reveal that Rahul is suffering from late-stage cancer and has just 90 days to live, he abandons his loved ones in order to die alone at a lavish hospice. Once there, he meets a series of people who inspire him to experience as much of life as he can during his last days.
