    Evan is a nurse, a suicide assistant. His job is legal...just. He's the one at the hospital who hands out the last drink to those who ask for it. Evan's friends don't know what he does during the day. His mother, Viv, doesn't know what he's up to at night. And his supervisor suspects there may be trouble ahead. As he helps one patient after another die, Evan pushes against legality, his own morality and the best intentions of those closest to him, discovering that his own path will be neither quick nor painless. He knows what he has to do.

    Evan's job is to help people die. Evan is a nurse, a suicide assistant. His job is legal - just. He's the one at the hospital who hands out the last drink to those who ask for it.
