Full film details

William Morrison (Anerurin Barnard) is a depressed writer whose desperate attempts to make money and succeed have failed miserably. Incredibly down, his unhappiness leads him to try and commit suicide several times. But no matter what new methods he tries, he keeps on failing at that too.

After nine unsuccessful attempts, he resorts to outsourcing his suicide to Leslie (Tom Wilkinson), a professional hitman who is nearing the end of his retirement. The assassin reassures him that he’ll be dead in a week, otherwise he’ll get his money back.

At first, William is looking forward to his imminent death. But one day, his luck suddenly changes.

Out of the blue, a publisher gets in touch and informs him that the company she works for would really like to work with him. There also happens to be undeniable chemistry between the pair and love quickly blossoms.

For the first time in his life, William has finally found something worth living for and no longer wants to die. But he’s already signed his own death warrant…

At risk of losing the money that was promised, Leslie and the head of the Guild of Assassins, Harvey (Christopher Eccleston), refuse to go back on the deal and are desperately trying to hunt William down. Now he must try and do everything he can to evade his own death before it’s too late.

A remarkable debut feature film from Tom Emmunds that cleverly intertwines comedy with drama while still managing to treat a serious subject with the utmost respect, Dead in a Week or Your Money Back features a talented cast including Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who), Anerurin Barnard (Dunkirk), and Tom Wilkinson (The Truth Can Be Adjusted).
