Like in many Marco Bellocchio films, real life images are mixed with actors' performances. Toni Servillo plays the role of a senator (a former socialist) from Silvio Berlusconi's majority coalition. The man is filled with doubts questions of conscience as he comes to a decision to vote against the law and resign, having given in to the pleas of his fatally ill wife who has been pleading with him to help her put an end to her life. His militant catholic daughter (Alba Rohrwacher), who has been protesting in front of the clinic where Eluana is hospitalized, falls in love with a young man (Michele Riondino) in favour of euthanasia.
