Last Chance is a sweeping story that goes the length and breadth of the world. It's 1950 and graphic designer Sydney Bannon learns she has breast cancer. Sydney spirals into a deep depression. After several days of despair, she decides if she has to die she will do the things she loves. She cancels her pending marriage and her job and heads for Europe.
Growing up during World War 2 and Korea, for Sydney Bannon it was a time of exciting possibilities. As the day of her wedding approaches, Sydney learns she has a life-threatening disease. In a panic, she cancels her wedding plans and goes into a deep depression. Finally coming out of it she decides to Europe and, "see Naples and die." On her European odyssey, she meets a survivor of Hiroshima and a Partisan that fought the Nazis. Then by a twist of fate, she meets three strangers who tell her about a Hungarian doctor that has had success in treating her condition. At first, she declines until one of the strangers tells her it might be her Last Chance.
