Ray Spooner, a mild mannered, complicated man from England, leads a normal life in Urbana, Illinois. He is a nurse that delivers babies, has a wife and three kids, and rides hundreds of miles a week on his bike; often competing in competitions and raising money for charity. At the age of 55, after bringing 2,095 babies into the world, he is forced to quit upon being diagnosed with ALS. This is a disease that slowly deteriorates the body until all basic functions are taken away and death occurs. It takes Ray no time to figure out what he will do before his end date. One item on his bucket list: a 3,000 mile journey across The United States. The film proceeds to chronicle Ray's journey across America as his body deteriorates, paralleling with an intimate portrait of him, from his wife's perspective.
