Aren’t we all a little afraid to die? We hope that it will happen peacefully and of old age. But what if you are suffering for many years and know that you will loose your consciousness at any moment or doctors have told you that you will die of suffocation. Would you be more afraid to live or more afraid to not die?

We follow Siv Tove on her way to Switzerland and the decision to die. She doesn’t want to lie in a bed, suffering and not living. It is not a life to just exist. She has an incurable lung disease and she is dependent on her oxygen machine at all hours of the day. We see her suffering, but also her determination. No friends or family can convince her otherwise, so watch her give them her last goodbyes.
