KNOCKIN' ON HEAVEN'S DOOR

KNOCKIN' ON HEAVEN'S DOOR

Rudy and Martin meet in a clinic's terminal ward. The doctors have already written them both off - there's only a little time left now. When Martin hears that Rudy has never been to the seaside, he persuades him to set off there immediately. "Because everyone in heaven goes on about the sea and how wonderful it is. And if you have never been there, then you'll just sit there and won't be able to join in." A wild, exciting journey begins, one they could actually call the journey of their lives - if it wasn't their last one. They are soon being chased by some hired killers and hunted by the police. But what does it matter? As each day passes, they get a bit nearer to the coast.
