It’s A Good Day To Die


Film synopsis:

Lily Bauer, is a sassy 81 year old battling terminal cancer. With impassioned forethought, she enlists the help of her daughter Celeste, and caregiver Eric, to organize her own themed assisted suicide. Lily wants to go out amid the sights and sounds of the Amazon rainforest.
While Celeste is at first stunned and resistant, she is reassured by Eric’s apparent comfort with Lily’s request, and together they honor the plan. Then, word slips out about Lily, and a host of outrageous themed death proposals come their way, quickly escalating into a successful start-up death business.
Finally, the law catches up with them, as do the secrets of Eric’s past that allow him to be so zealous in the face of Lily’s final moments. Ultimately, Eric and Celeste must come to terms with their series of illegal “good deeds”, as well as the true value of their own life and death.
