A defense lawyer challenges the assisted-suicide law in a case involving a hearing-impaired embryologist, whose website encouraged a woman to kill herself by putting a bag over her head and handcuffing herself to her bed, but failed after being found by two maids. The woman claims she was raped, and later commits suicide by medicine. Munch reveals that his father committed suicide after Munch insulted him.
