Who Owns My Life? the Sue Rodriguez Story

This moving documentary chronicles the last 18 months in the life of a courageous woman who battled a fatal disease while fighting for her legal right to doctor-assisted suicide. We go behind the scenes and beyond the issues to spend intimate moments with this gracious, yet determined woman who allowed her personal pain to become public in her bid for the kind of death she wanted. Though her campaign was ultimately unsuccessful Rodriguez expressed some satisfaction that she had managed to put the issue of how and when and who controls the death of the terminally ill on the public agenda.
