The Good Death

Terminally ill Janette wants to die with dignity, but it’s not possible in the UK, where she lives. 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. She must plan her journey to Switzerland before her rapidly advancing disease makes it impossible. Before leaving on her last journey, she must explain her intention to her family members and close friends.
