A moving argument for one woman’s right to choose when and how she dies

A rare genetic disorder has left Gina confined to a quiet, darkened bedroom because sound and light harm her ears and eyes. Her muscles have deteriorated, leaving her in severe pain and unable to speak. She communicates using a touch-alphabet method, and the message she sends is clear: she wants to pursue voluntary euthanasia. In this moving short documentary for New Zealand’s Loading Docs initiative, Gina explains her decision, and argues for her right to choose and plan a peaceful, humane death.

Director: Wendell Cooke

Producer: Jeremy Macey
