Based on an award-winning Esquire article, 'The Friend' tells the heart-warming and equally heart-breaking story of a man who drops everything to support his best friends. When Nicole Teague finds out she is dying of terminal cancer, and only has six months to live, she and her family are at a loss. Fortunately, their friend Dane (Jason Segel) is prepared to put his own life on hold to pull them through this tough chapter.
