An Unexamined Life
After thirty years of counseling the terminally ill, nothing can surprise Dr. Miles Grayson until Katie Marin bounces into his office. Young and pretty, Katie is healthy except for an aneurysm in her brain. It’s operable, but she doesn’t want it repaired, happily planning for her funeral. This puts the hospital in an awkward spot. If Katie dies of a treatable condition, they risk being charged with medical negligence.
Miles, struggling with his own troubles, sees no point in working with Katie. He can’t get her to embrace life when he himself is flirting with suicide. His boss feels differently and gives Miles an ultimatum: convince Katie to have the operation or forfeit his job. Slouching into therapy, Miles discovers Katie has an unusual problem. Her imaginary friends, Bill Zeebub and Harold Angel, have followed her into adulthood and are intent on making every ones’ lives, including Miles’s, more complicated.
