Award-winning filmmaker Ondi Timoner focuses on her family for this astonishing and poignant portrait of her father’s last days.
Eli Timoner, a dedicated husband, father, and entrepreneur who founded the airline Air Florida in the 1970s, decides to medically terminate his life. During the 15-day waiting period, the bedridden but sharp-witted Eli says goodbye to those closest to him and helps them prepare for his departure.
While his loved ones look back on Eli’s successes and devastating blows, they struggle to reconcile his choice. Two-time winner of the Sundance Film Festival U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize (Dig!, We Live in Public) Ondi Timoner returns with an intimate vérité film about her family’s heart-wrenching journey to find closure.
