The ultimate drama in the human comedy.

Gifted sculptor Ken Harrison is now a hospitalized quadriplegic. And no matter how much he makes light of his condition, another kind of light inside him grows dim. Ken wants the doctors to let him die.

In this searing version of the hit play, Richard Dreyfuss plays Ken, jousting with physicians, teasing nurses and striving to persuade hospital authorities and the justice system that he can't be denied one of the few choices he has left. John Badham directs a compelling cast, including John Cassavetes, Christine Lahti and Bob Balaban. Whose Life Is It Anyway? It's Ken's. Seen another way, it's society's. And as these two sides clash, you'll laugh, weep and just might look at your life in a whole new way.
