This is truly one of the most inspiring things I've seen in a long time. No human being is so far gone that love cannot bring them back. It is such a wonderful testimony to how human beings become more who they are meant to be through compassionate service to others. This is the message of the Gospel -- which Jesus spoke about but more importantly lived. This documentary demonstrates this so well without every becoming preachy or repetitive. What is also particularly moving is that the hospice volunteers often do not know what the other prisoners are in for (but the viewing audience does). They also have to deal with difficult patients without any thanks at times. Rather than giving up or even judging each other, these men persevered and grew more and more loving in the process. Watch it. It will stay with you.
