Is the choice of ending your life entirely your own?

Mario Verstraete was Belgiums biggest supporter of euthanasia. And when the Belgian senate legalized it in 2002, Verstraete was the first in line. TIME OF MY LIFE tells the true story of how Verstraete, his family and his friends tackles his fight to die. How great is a man's own freedom? How far can one go in the fight to prevent euthanasia? Is it acceptable to take one's own life when you have a child? TIME OF MY LIFE is both intense and riddled with difficult questions.
