NotesA man with an incurable disease accepts an offer to live in luxury for his brief spell left on earth provided he jumps into a volcano near the end to appease the god of the volcano. After the good life, en route to the volcano he falls in love. Sounds good, but apparently the story flows like lava. And yes it does. Joe is given 6 months to live. First his brain will go then his body. Rather like members of the audience.
