Enter the world of Jack Kevorkian, the most notorious doctor of modern times. His struggle to legalize physician-assisted suicide spurred a global controversy that still lives on today. Is he a crazed zealot or moral crusader, murderer or guardian angel?
Now, after eight long years in prison, "Doctor Death" is free and has shocked the world by running for US Congress at 80. Kevorkian paints an intimate and surprising portrait of a man whose altruistic compassion, uncompromising drive and complex vision alternately persuade and repel, inspire and horrify.
“People are taught that life is a wonderful gift. Oh Sure, if you're healthy, eating well, got a job, but ask someone in Darfur or in Afghanistan if he thinks life's a gift. Many wouldn't agree...”—Dr Jack Kevorkian
