Ethan Sisser, a young man afflicted with brain cancer, sits alone in his hospital room. When he begins live-streaming his death journey on social media, thousands of people around the world join him and celebrate his courage. Still, Ethan envisions more – to teach the world how to die without fear.
To honor his final wish of filming his death, his doctor, Aditi Sethi, transports him to a quiet house in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. What unfolds next is a story that's rarely glimpsed: how a community helps a stranger die on his own terms.
A sensory immersion into leaving the body, "The Last Ecstatic Days" reveals a man who will not let us forget him – even after he’s taken his final breath.
I hope to see as many of you as possible at Death Over Drafts next Monday!
