Six patients in a remarkable small hospice in Scotland share glimpses into their final days, fraught with feelings of fear, acceptance, grief, and love. Encouraged by the gifted nurse Mandy Malcomson, the patients, including Alicia, a retired midwife, and Julie, a 23-year-old with cancer, write songs and create music videos to tell stories for their families and the outside world. The songs are woven together with simple, unsentimental footage of everyday life inside the hospice, suggesting that all stories have different endings. The film affirms the importance of home, ritual, poetry, and music as essential to accepting the transience of life.

Co-presented by the British Consulate General New York
