The trailer of  End Credits can be seen here. A low quality screener can be viewed here.   Both the Dutch version and an English subtitles version of the DVD can be acquired

The film looks at the practice of euthanasia in Belgium 10 years after the law became into force. The directors followed two people nearing the end of their lives; one with an unbearable and hopeless mental condition, the second suffering from dementia decline.

The film demonstrates the carefulness with which euthanasia requests are dealt with in Belgium.
