  • Title:
    Afternoon Walk
  • Short Description:
    An elderly man has to learn to come to terms with the choice his wife has made regarding euthanasia. John and Carol are taking a walk in the park where Carol brings up Euthanasia, as she has lung cancer. He hates the idea and shoots it down. Later on, he has a flashback about his life and recalls the day they found out about Carol’s cancer. He remembers that she never wanted to even do chemo, and she did that because of him. He realizes then that he has to let her do what is best for her, even though it will be difficult for him. When they are on another walk about a month later he tells her that he supports her decision. This script is unique because euthanasia is still a taboo subject in the US and this script shows the different feelings that come when a loved one wants to be euthanized.
