A bold, graphic, intimate portrait of death. In the last stage of an AIDS-related illness, Gavin asks his friends to aid him in his death. But when it all goes wrong, friends and family break apart in waves of loss, guilt, jealousy and confusion.
‘This superb film about loss could have been unbearably sad, but it’s leavened with a strong sense of very Australian humour … this is a quite haunting piece of work’ – David Stratton, The Movie Show
