Synopsis (Website):

Based on a true story, Time of My Life is the story of the MS-patient Mario Verstraete who was not only instrumental in legalising euthanasia in Belgium ... but was also the first to make use of that new law. This is the story of his best friend and the girl who loved both of them. The story of a group of friends and family who stood by him. Till always.

Synopsis (Verleih-Website):

They were young and Thomas and Mario are friends for life. Lynn is the girl they both love, Speck the loose cannon who's the fourth wheel to their wagon. Mario is a fiercely ambitious and combative young man, with a loud mouth, and big theatrical plans for an exciting future, great in every way. Just when his political career is about to get under steam, he is suddenly diagnosed with MS. Thomas, who has become a doctor, is the silent hero of the story, who will have to witness the degradation of his best friend.

At first, Mario is really courageous about it. He tries to take it all with courage under sense of humor that is his. But pretty soon he finds out the aggressive nature of his disease. Very early on he is clear on one thing: he plans to go on for as long as his body will carry him. And for as long as it's fun.

When the fun ends somebody has to help him to the emergency exit. But is this the kind of question you can ask your best friend?

Confronted with the prospect of a very slowly decaying body, and even worse a faltering mind, Mario starts his quest to try and get euthanasia out of the penal system.
