If you have 100 things to do before you die, what would they be? Joyce, a single yuppie who works for an accounting firm, lives alone in a well-appointed apartment with her cat. At her prime, Joyce id diagnosed with cancer. She has less than a month to live. She resigns from work and takes home a bunch of Post-It's. At home, she starts to write and sticks on a blank wall the 100 Post-Its to serve as reminder of 100 "things to do" before she dies. The task vary from practical to whimsical, from mundane to profound, from "things-she-will-missdoing" to "things-she-wishes-she has-done". They are simple tasks and hard tasks. Not wanting to be pitied and be treated differently, she accomplishes her list all by herself. Her character unfolds - a rigid, uncompromising and "by-the-numbers" woman. Unresolved questions in her life are confronted: her solitude, her decision to keep her condition to herself, her regrets and views about death.
