The Good Death


Janette is terminally ill and wants to die in a dignified way. Muscular dystrophy, the illness that Janette suffers from, has affected her family for generations. Janette’s mother was wheelchair bound for decades, a prisoner in her own body. Janette refuses to wait for death in unbearable pain and opts for physician-assisted suicide. Before leaving on her last journey she has to explain her intention to her family members and close friends.
