Playing God

An interactive court drama by the makers of THE VERDICT.

Ever since his wife passed away, 78-year-old Richard has lost the will to live. He is not sick at all, but due to the loss of the love of his life, he wants to end it, assisted by his physician Dr. Brandt. However, he is denied the assisted suicide – but Richard does not accept this and sues. Now, the Ethics Council has to decide an essential question: Do human beings have the right to decide over their own life and death? A gripping, interactive court drama, where the audience will hear arguments from several perspectives: law, church, academia, medical professionals, and a man who wants to take fate in his own hands. In the end, the viewer will decide whether Richard has a right to assisted suicide.
