Last Flight Home

In this moving, boundlessly humane documentary, the director Ondi Timoner filmed the final days of her father’s life. Her father, Eli Timoner, chose to die at age 92 under California’s End of Life Option Act, which at the time required, among other steps, a 15-day waiting period after the patient’s first oral request to a doctor for aid-in-dying medication” (New York Times). Timoner founded Air Florida, the world’s fastest growing airline in the 1970s, and spends his final days on an unremarkable suburban street behind a white picket fence. In this film, we discover his extraordinary life filled with incredible success, devastating setbacks and, most importantly, an innate goodness which won him the enduring love and support of his family. Through stunning verité footage recorded by his middle child, Last Flight Home takes audiences on a heart-wrenching ride through Timoner’s life.
