Portrayal of palliative caregiver Stephen Jenkinson. This film shows Tim Wilson's dealing with his denial of his own death where he almost succumbed to an illness, and coping with the death of someone close to him. Jenkinson explains something that is uncomfortable for most Westerners to hear, that death and grief are woven into the fabric of life and that death is something to be 'befriended'.

An interesting perspective, on a subject we tend to aviod.

Agreed! Beautifully presented material in every sense. This movie is not just about dying, it's for anyone looking to find a deeper place and meaning in life.
