abstract
How far would you go to sustain the life of someone you love or your own? When the moment comes, and you're confronted with the prospect of 'pulling the plug', do you know how you'll respond? Unfounded rumors of federal 'death panels' grabbed headlines last summer, but the real decisions of how we die, the questions that most of us prefer to put off, are being made quietly behind closed doors, increasingly on the floors of America's intensive care units.
language note
In English; optional video description or subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Main Description
How far would you go to sustain the life of someone you love, or your own? When the moment comes, and you're confronted with the prospect of pulling the plug, do you know how you'll respond? FRONTLINE examines the complicated reality of today's modern, medicalized death, and offers an unusually intimate portrait of patients facing the prospect of dying in ways that they might never have wanted or imagined.
