THE BOTTOM LINE

This video deals with real problems that the elderly face as they approach the end of their lives. What do we do when the advances of medical technology turn longevity into a curse? Two separate stories are intertwined in this powerful dramatization on aging. In one, gangrene in the leg of an 82 year-old woman threatens her life and doctors want to amputate, against her wishes. In the second, a man with dementia, an incurable deterioration of the brain, simply chooses to stop eating. Which is more important: life or the quality of life? Where does Jewish law come into play? Where do we draw the line? Who decides?
