Paul Bryan, an attorney speeding down the fast track, staggers from his physician's office after finding that he's got 1, at most 2 years to live. Telling no one of his diagnosis, he sets out to pack all he missed as workaholic and Air Force pilot, into his remaining time. First up is a ski trip at a remote, Alpine luxury spa packed with jet-setters. One guest is an arrogant son of a dictator, who assassinated a human rights champion, a law professor of Paul's. Paul spurned an offer to run for California Attorney General after getting his own death sentence. A suspicious avalanche severs the spa's ties with the outside world, causing the paranoid General Portaz and his bodyguards to quickly intimidate almost everyone, except a care-free, whip-tongued billionaire with a much-younger husband. Life-long bachelor Paul, and the macho General also vie over a beautiful young U.S. citizen. Which kills General Portaz first: Paul, an assassin, or severely hampered room service ?
