Hemlock Chat Afterwards
A 2016 American-British film shot in beautiful British settings. A young handsome, wealthy man confined to a wheel chair, wants to end his life at Dignitas in Switzerland. Love develops with his caregiver; she is strenuously opposed to his hastening his death. See what happens! Learn about Dignitas.
Discussion to follow. When is it time to leave? How much should you consider others' feelings? Would Dignitas work for you? Should disabled people be offended? What about marriage for this man?
