Edward and Carter (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman) lead extremely different lives. But what they have in common is cancer—and less than a year to live. They therefore create a “bucket list” (goals to accomplish before “kicking the bucket”) and go on adventures together. The two protagonists spend the remaining moments of their lives with each other and their families. The story reminds us to love our family and friends and, most importantly, to always live life to the fullest.
