Meet Joe Power, approaching forty and counting down ...Counting down the days until he sees his son. Counting down the number of years he spent with his wife before it all fell apart. Counting down the inches he has to lose off his waist to be a babe magnet again. Counting down all the fools who want to tell him to get his act together. Counting the hours until he can take one of his exhilarating night walks and encounter ...well, who knows what, but one thing is sure, he'll be the one to come out of it alive. Counting down every moment knowing that one day, it will be his last.
