Joyce is homecare nurse to Mr Lim, a former police inspector stricken with cancer but who refuses treatment, preferring his life to end. Conscious of a bond with him because of his association to her police inspector father and wanting to help him recover, Joyce tries to entice her recalcitrant patient to take his medication until she learns of the true relationship between the two and has to decide between pursuing vengeance or granting mercy to the man who hovers in agony between life and death.
