Huge ask of /bookworms/ (5)

This is a huge ask but can someone write for me my dream story?
It can be a short story or anything really. Please take this serious - I realy love reading but I am not that great at writing. there are no time constraints to this at all ~ this is not homework hehe.

This is the kind of story I want:

A man in a futuristic world is in love with life seeks to escape death by exploring the underground trade in taboo and illicit styles of technology so that he make live indefinitely. He engages in dealing with people who believes he may be able to guide him to a means to overcome the constraints of his mortality. His quest is accomplished and acquires a means to immortality. However, the inadvertent tribulations and immorality of his actions in the process surmount in a slow decent into misery and desperation in the process. His character and personality changes, aswell as his disposition towards life. Changed by the journey for that he no longer seeks, he contrarily embraces death in his emotional distress. The conflicting joy of alleviating his suffering and the resolve in the fleeting joy before his suicide, provoke painfully joyful memories from his well lived past. And, equally so, regret.

In my head it has like all these grays, blacks and whites to everything and then random slashes of bright vibrant colour in places! It sounds really pathetic - I know, but maybe someone could quickly write something, anything like this. You would realy make someone realy happy. Making my day could hardly compare

I think you should write it yourself. You only get better at writing by writing. You already have the idea. Just start at the beginning. Describe the man, how his day goes or the world he lives in.

So, when was the last time you watched Vanilla Sky? (or Open Your Eyes, the movie it was a remake of?)

Not OP, and I haven't seen either movie but as >>2 says, Picture of Dorian Gray fits OP's description pretty damned good.
