D.P Pallickal, an amateur film maker who claims he is the next film legend. D.P has great passion, but lacks talent. His family and friends constantly make fun of his amateurishness of his masterpiece short films.
A young charismatic preacher and his hot Latina girlfriend travel Route 66 scamming the small churches along the way only to find that the bogus healing powers he portrays become real. The healing powers serve as a blessing and a curse.

Peter Short, the charismatic CEO of a major Australian company, learns that he has only months to live after he is diagnosed with terminal oesophageal cancer. Not wanting to face a painful death, Peter decides to source the lethal drug Nembutal, giving him the option to end his own life peacefully. With the help of a rogue doctor who supplies the drug to suffering patients, Peter sets out to have voluntary euthanasia legalised in Australia.
A compelling documentary covering the issue of legalized euthanasia
This story highlights the pain and suffering that confirmed terminally ill people have to endure before they reach their ultimate fate .... death. All Peter Short asks for is the right to choose to end his life at a time of his choosing and in a dignified manner. Not by committing suicide in the garage or cutting an artery whilst sitting in the bath tub. No, he wants the right to say goodbye to his family, friends and pets in a loving and dignified way. This documentary follows the last months of Peter Short's life as he suffers a relapse of esophageal cancer. It is a remarkable story of his courage and that of his family as they face Peter's ultimate death. He takes on the cause of euthanasia and strongly supports Dying with Dignity and sides with Dr Rodney Syme and Senator Richard Di Natale to push for voluntary euthanasia in this country. A well balanced and presented documentary, not a one-sided opinion piece. I applaud the family of Peter Short with their continued involvement in supporting and pushing the cause so dear to Peter's heart.
