Dr. Jack Kevorkian (1928 - 2011 ) in the 1990s, when he defies Michigan law assisting the suicide of terminally-ill persons. Support comes from his sister, a lab tech, the Hemlock Society president, and a lawyer. The child of survivors of the Armenian genocide interviews applicants: his sister video tapes them. He assembles a device allowing a person to initiate a three-chemical intravenous drip. The local D.A., the governor, and the Legislature respond. In court scenes, Kevorkian is sometimes antic. He's single-minded about giving dying individuals the right to determine how their lives will end. He wants the Supreme Court to rule. He picks a fight he can't win: is it hubris or heroism?

Excellence! What a great production! All the way with the acting,writing,directing,cinematography,music and editing.All superb. I'm just happy how compalling and how well-thought this movie was. It takes you to a man's story about life and death and how it all goes down when the life turns its back on people and how different people respond to them. The thing that really captivated me was that how people's reactions and choices differed from each other in this movie.It reminded me of all the same things that are happening around me.Wel...I've never been a big Pacino fan but man..how wrong was i! What else to say?! It's just great.Please see it.
