Dave Watts is a risk analyst, which is why he never takes any risks. On his birthday however, he is prompted to call someone who means the world to him, which to him is the biggest risk of them all. As he keeps putting it off, his heart rate is sinking continuously and the world around him gets faster and faster as he keeps slowing down. Dave starts taking ever bigger risks to get his heart rate back up but everything fails until ultimately there's only one thing left to do.
