    Richard Dreyfuss stars in this movie version of the successful Broadway play about an artist who is paralyzed from the neck down. Upon realizing his situation, and his inability to do what he loved, what made him who he was, he begins to fight for the right to die. The movie is well-acted by all, and powerful as it tackles the sensitive question: When does living become merely surviving? And when it becomes surviving, should you be allowed to call an end to it?
