A Decision

Synopsis

This documentary tells two different stories featuring ventilator-dependent patients in Taiwan and the people around them. Along with nearly 4,000 such cases on our island, these bedridden and mostly unconscious individuals are unable to communicate with the outside world, except through their ECG waves. Facing the dilemma of futile medical care, and the rights to live and die as one chooses, everyone has to make their own decision: Should they stay on or move on?
