Synopsis

This made-for-cable movie, uniting two screen legends for the first time, deals with the conflict between an elderly couple who decide to end their lives together in a suicide pact when the wife learns she has a terminal illness, and their married daughter who, with the help of local social service agencies, tries to dissuade them from their misguided plan. Based on Richard Lees' 1978 play which was produced at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis but never got to Broadway, the film generated some controversy until its premiere, shortly before which the ending was changed and several characters were eliminated (although their names remain among the credits).
