Edge of Life highlights the extremes with which society deals with the act of dying in its literal juxtaposition of Bill Erickson, whose cancer has progressed to the point that he has determined to end the ineffective chemotherapy which has made his existence a living hell against the elderly and essentially comatose Gertrude Hall. Bill, retaining his faculties, is able to speak for himself and must convince his family and physicians that further treatment is futile and that his choice to enter into hospice is the right one for him, while Gertrude, stuck in the purgatory of life support, must await an advocate who will speak truth for her.
