Can you explain a little bit about what's happening? Why is this the path he chose and how is this a better alternative to simply dying?

Well he's young, not lived a full life and thinks the alternative may give him time to live a little longer... and maybe, someone will will find a cure.

Let me know if you want to now anymore or are looking to film it, script can be tailored to suit.
