Veronika Decides to Die

Veronika (Sarah Michelle Gellar), a woman in her mid-twenties who appears to have everything: good looks, good job and a great life ahead of her decides to end her own life. She is unsuccessful and awakens in a mental hospital where she learns that her overdose caused irreparable heart damage and she only has a couple of weeks to live. However, in the hospital she meets people who are only 'insane' because they don't always follow society's rules. With little left to lose, Veronika embarks on a journey on which she frees herself to experience relationships and feelings of love and hate, and ultimately discovers what it means to live. Based on the international bestseller by Paulo Coelho.
