Ruud (60) has been the representative of his little brother Ron (48) for over 40 years, who can't decide for himself because of his Down syndrome. Next to the common ailments of ageing, Ron recently has to cope with dementia as well. This sets him into his last stage of life. Ruud now has to decide how Ron can spend this last period as well as possible. But how do you make such big decisions regarding the life of another person? Isn't it impossible to do the right thing? Eventually Ruud won't decide on Ron's life, but on Ron's death. Letting go, how does one do such a thing?
