A documentary crew films the final week of a woman's life leading up to her suicide.
When Helen, an elderly woman, approaches documentary film maker Nate to make a film about her, he asks why. "Because I'm going to kill myself next Saturday," she states. So begins the making of a documentary like no other. As Nate and his producing partner Hilary struggle with their decision of whether or not to stop Helen, we see the film-within-the-film as Helen explains her reasons. As we build to that fateful day the film makers struggle with emotion, tension and morality. Will Helen go through with it? And if she does, will they film it?
