Janette is terminally ill and wants to die in a dignified way, but British laws do not allow it. She gets in touch with Dr. Erika in Switzerland, who is willing to help her. Muscular dystrophy, the illness that Janette suffers from, has affected her family for generations. Janette must plan her journey to Switzerland before her rapidly advancing disease makes it impossible. With inner peace she organises her departure while her loved ones go through an emotional storm. Her son Simon has also inherited this illness. and so he has much more sympathy regarding her decision than his sister Bridget. The relationship drama escalates as death comes closer. Do we own our life or does it own us?
