This 30 minute documentary shines a clear, bright light on death through the words and stories of patients, family members and medical providers. It is designed to empower viewers to learn about, and speak more openly about, their own end of life choices and desires. It is also a gentle tool that can be used by professionals to encourage and support meaningful conversations with clients, patients and their own families.
