GINA – a documentary on suffering

Two young Wellington (NZ) film makers Wendell and Jeremy produced a 3-min documentary about Gina, a 45 year old woman from Wellington, who has a genetic condition. She is in hospital level care in a rest home. She has been there for 5 years, bedridden. She lives in semi darkness, cannot talk and is extremely sensitive to sound. The specialist said her prognosis is that she won’t recover and she may well live a long life.
And, she is of sound mind, loves chocolate and has a delightful sense of humour.This is Gina’s story.It tells us why, when there is a law change, there must be a choice for people who live with unbearable suffering.

Please watch her story and pass it on to others. It is too important to ignore.
