New Year. For Jake and Steven life is good. And it's about to get a whole lot better. 16 going on 17, the future means parties, laughs and girls, all a year older and ready at last to make good their promises. And to kick things off there's a skiing trip to France with a bunch of mates from school. But the trip ends in tragedy. A freak avalanche wipes out everyone in the party except for Jake and Steven, who return home shocked, confused and unable to come to terms with what has happened. Suddenly the plans they had for the year ahead mean nothing. Instead the two make a pact that the next 12 months will be their last and that before new Year's Day comes around again they'll live only for the moment, seeking thrills, taking risks and doing anything they want... before they die.
