A personal carer is placed in a morally and emotionally confronting situation when a patient he has a deep friendship with and who suffers from a terminal illness, ALS, a form of Motor Neurone Disease (MND), asks him to help her end her life.
David is a personal carer to Willow, a young woman who has been diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a degenerative neurological disorder for which there is currently no known cure.
Afraid of the inevitable future, and as her condition painfully deteriorates, Willow has no other option but to ask David, the only person by her side, to help find a way to end her life when the moment comes.
David is not only care-giver; he is friend, confidant, comic relief and hope. But his is not willing to assist Willow in her death. For reasons residing in his own distant past, he becomes completely engrossed and troubled by Willow’s request, resulting in the neglect of his relationship with girlfriend, Carly.
Torn between moral beliefs on assisted dying, the pressure to fix his relationship and the desire to help Willow, David finds a way through this seemingly impossible situation.
