Natlab x BROET x Picl | Dokter Kees - Zoekend naar de wil van Willy
Is Willy still mentally competent to decide whether he wants to live? Or has the time come to grant what he wrote down before and should he be euthanized based on his advance directive? This documentary follows the search of a doctor to his patient's will.
Kees is a specialist geriatric medicine, working at Vaandelhof, a closed department of a nursing home in Eindhoven. Willy has been living in this department for a over a year now. He has dementia and brain damage due to multiple bicycle racing accidents. He suffers from agression, delusions and is often immersed in himself. Willy's family has specified that he signed a living will. They wonder whether the time has come to administer euthanasia. His wife and children support Willy's will, because he said he would never want to live this way. Together with Kees, they are now looking for what seems to be best for Willy.
