The controversy over a person's right to die at a time and place of their own choosing has become focused on the Swiss organization Dignitas. Dignitas, in Zurich Switzerland, is the only place where a person seeking an assisted suicide can legally be helped to die, no matter where they are from – or what their state of health. For a year, Oscar-winning Canadian director John Zaritsky had exclusive access to Dignitas, and its clients. Through the intimate, compelling, and controversial stories of four lives and one death. Right to die? will take the audience on a journey they could only have imagined, and won't forget.
