Storyline

Do we have the right to end our lives if life itself becomes unbearable, or we are terminally ill? With unique access to Dignitas, the Swiss non-profit that has helped over one thousand people die, filmmaker John Zaritsky offers a revealing look at two couples facing the most difficult decision of their lives--and lets us see as one Chicago native makes the trip to Switzerland for what will become the last day of his life.

Might make u ugly cry
2 December 2018 | by SouravChakraborty_P1See all my reviews

One of the toughest and hard to watch documentary I have seen, it will make u cry like a small child. My heart goes out for his family, it was a tough decision to make, but hope he is in a safer and much better place now. Highly recommended
