An intimate portrayal of one man's life and decision
This is a moving story of a man, a self made man, as told by his daughter. Powerful, funny, and brutally honest, it follows the last days of Bob Stern, a man who tries to decide whether he should take his own life following the diagnosis of terminal cancer. But before he makes up his mind, he decides to talk through the issue with his daughters, by way of a video message. Using clips from the recorded session, Susan Stern weaves the impressive story of Bob Stern's life in with the equally riveting story of his death. The most fascinating aspect of this film is how the story tells itself, and the overwhelming sense of reality that it conveys to the audience. A fantastic take on an important social issue that impacts so many families.
