Not Going Quietly FINAL Play Button

When 32-year-old activist Ady Barkan is diagnosed with ALS and given four years to live, he falls into a deep depression as he struggles to connect with his newborn son. After a chance encounter with Senator Jeff Flake goes viral, Barkan decides to dedicate the rest of his life to fighting for healthcare justice. Featuring hours of up close, powerful, and personal footage as Barkan travels across the country, Not Going Quietly is a testament to the power of collective action asĀ  a source of hope for the future.
