How did it happen? A movie about six hospice patients you just want to keep watching! Funny, touching and passionate in their enjoyment of life, this film surprises with its use of song. A great score by Mark Orton leads us through one of the key issues of our age: that medicine has recently changed our relationship with fatal disease, and we can now live for years, rather than months, after a terminal diagnosis. Sometimes. How do we cope with this uncertainty? The documentary’s cast are quirky, wry front-runners in a journey that we will all face.
“Incredibly moving…patients and staff use singing as therapy and the musical moments become the way in for lightly sketched portraits about each of their lives.” —Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
