However she has cancer. The chemotherapy gives her hair loss and she plays on this to defuse situations with humour. Unfortunately the cancer is malignant and will kill her within a few years but Mo keeps this fact quiet in order to see through her Northern Irish task.

A Short Stay In Switzerland

Starring...
Julie Walters
Stephen Campbell Moore
Lyndsey Marshal
Liz White
Michelle Fairley
Will Knightley
Patrick Malahide


  A Short Stay In Switzerland

Just after losing her husband to a similar condition, Dr Anne Turner is diagnosed with a fatal neurological condition. So she plans to end her life herself. Based on a true story.

Julie Walters really captures the essence of a woman who will not become the victim of a terrible disease and shows how to pull at the heart strings with some fine acting that goes beyond the script.

This movie really brings the issue of euthanasia into the home and into the thoughts of all of us. What is really right when it comes to euthanasia, after all, Jesus helped to relieve the pain and suffering of many, but religion is not the debate here, the real story is Doctor Anne Turner and her family supporting each other through their time of need. The film, although sad, is uplifting and brave. The issues brought to light within the film help to show us how dignity is lost and pain, and suffering commences when there is no option for assisted suicide in the terminally ill.
