This is the true story of voluntary assisted dying advocate Dr Alida Lancee who's actions galvanised the public debate around euthanasia in Australia. This Perth doctor came to the public’s attention after admitting that, when a terminal and suffering patient had requested assistance to die, she had (after palliative treatments failed to help), eventually agreed.
In 2019, WA passed legislation on voluntary assisted dying. Dr Lancee is an unsung hero as she placed her reputation, her livelihood and her freedom on the line to publicly admit to helping a suffering patient. Hellie explains that Dr Lancee has always been interested in the notion of choice for her patients. The monologue written by Hellie Turner is a celebration of life and the end of life.
