In Belgium, anyone deemed to be experiencing "unbearable and incurable suffering" is allowed the right to die, and euthanasia is often used on patients who have decades to live.

Brett Mason follows the stories of two Belgians considering assisted suicide, exploring the moral difficulties behind the most liberal euthanasia laws in the world.
