"Choosing Death" is the second part of British filmmaker Louis Theroux's Altered States three-part documentary in which he spends time with families in the United States who are going through the hardest times of their lives.


There are now six states in the US that allow the terminally ill to legally take their own life using a cocktail of prescribed drugs. Louis travels to ones of those states, California, where he is invited to the family homes of those planning to end their mortal life on Earth.


In Altered States, Louis learns the complex moral and legal issues surrounding an individual choosing death to avoid the misery of a terminal illness.
