When Kay and her husband, Cyril, are in their 50s, they make a pact
to commit suicide together when they turn 80. Kay has watched her
elderly father’s demise from Alzheimer’s, and the couple want to
determine their own fate. What sounds like a depressing plot turns
into a fascinating and clever study of aging and self-determination.
It raises the question of how much it is possible to control one’s fate.
