Megan is very ill in hospital so her best friend Jamie writes stories to amuse her. They're all of heroes facing villains to rescue someone (each played out as a mini-play) but it soon becomes apparent that Jamie can't help Megan in her fight and she passes away. He then gives up on his dream of becoming a writer until he realises that it was Megan who was the hero of his story; her courage inspires him for a future without her.
