Synopsis

BBC drama written by Frank McGuinness and starring Julie Walters, inspired by the true story of Dr Anne Turner. After having recently lost her husband to a degenerative neurological disease, Anne (Julie Walters) is then herself diagnosed with a similar condition and, rather than suffering the debilitating effects of the illness, takes the decision to travel to Switzerland to end her own life when her symptoms reach a certain stage. This decison causes a great deal of upset within her family and amongst her friends, as they struggle to come to terms with Anne's determined wishes.
