Since 1994, Oregonians have had the right to physician-assisted suicide. Filmmaker Peter Richardson, known for his ability to make deep emotional connections on camera, reveals the highly complex and intimate decision to end one's own life through the stories of the terminally ill in Oregon. Examining both sides of this controversial issue, Richardson poignantly leads audiences to explore what it means to die with dignity.
