Julie Walters stars in a one-off drama inspired by the true story of Dr Anne Turner, from award-winning writer Frank McGuinness. Having just witnessed the death of her husband, Jack, from an incurable neurological disease, Dr Turner is diagnosed with a near-identical illness. With determined rationality, Anne's answer is that once her illness has reached a critical point, she will take her own life ... but she needs her children's support. The more Anne's son and two daughters struggle to gain consensus over their mother's desire to die, as they struggle to find another way through, the further they pull apart. From Jessica's silent recriminations to Sophie's stubborn practicality, the magnitude of the situation threatens to tear the family to pieces. Anne must also face the fury of her best friend, Claire, whose opposing views bring them into direct and vocal conflict.
