The intimate story behind our relationship with death – through great songs!

How do you plan your future when you don’t know how long you have to live? With the encouragement of a nurse who loves to sing and a collaborative filmmaking process, six hospice patients tell the intimate story of society’s changing relationship with death. Recent advances in biomedicine mean that we can now live for years rather than months after a terminal diagnosis. Maybe. At once tender and funny, this film explores the issues that all of us face in coping with uncertainty.

Dying is part of living. What does this mean for you? After the film, join Hospice Peterborough staff for a roundtable discussion about the movie and your reflections. Facilitated by Hospice Peterborough.
