I'm giving an overview of the movie here. Mr. Baum went to his doctor for the results of some tests. He was told (after the doctor's convoluted computations) that he has an aggressive cancer and has only 90-92 minutes to live. Mr. Baum then decided to wrap things up and called and met several people close to him. The rest of the film showed how Mr. Baum used his 92 minutes and how people reacted to his actions.
Actually, the audience acted as members of a group touring a museum of sorts in honor of Mr. Baum (a device shown in the movie itself). Inside the museum, the guide would comment on several items, notes, and even a snap shot of Mr. Baum which traced his last few minutes. We were given a treat when some thoughts were 'recorded' and we were shown the dream-thoughts of Mr. Baum of what he thought would happen in several scenarios.
All in all, the film was a good movie because of its interesting script, characters and devices. Long after the film, one might yet think about Mr. Baum and how one will spend his last few minutes on earth.
