Not easily forgotten, “I Won’t Go” paints an intimate and representative portrait of countless older adults whose only “crimes” are growing old, and wanting to keep their independence – at all costs. Oli’s story brings home the complex issues of self-neglect, competence and capacity, the innate desire for independence, and the right to live and die at home with dignity.
