This film follows four people working a job few would desire: tending to the needs of the dying. They are nurses, but they are also therapists, entertainers, disciplinarians, and family to these patients. Filmed at one of the only full-time residential hospices in the country, this film creates an authentic portrait of a day-in-the-life of the hospice. Off-the-cuff interviews with staff are at the heart of the film as they talk about burnout, budget cuts, and, more warmly, about their patients. These nurses waver between fulfillment and despair, clashing with management and fighting budget cuts while trying to keep life as normal as possible for their dying patients.
