Storyline

Shhh! Death is a taboo subject. Most of us do not want to discuss it. We tiptoe around it, try to circumvent it, or use euphemisms. Our loved ones did not die; they 'passed away'. Maybe we think we can avoid death, but no one can, and death is not limited to physical death. It comes in many forms. We can experience the death of a dream, the death of a relationship, the death of our youth, the death of our health, and any number of significant changes that force us to grapple with impermanence. If we do not face death, though, we fear it, and fear is an even heavier load to bear than death, because fear saps the energy out of life. Written by Sofia A. Wellman

Sensitive topic handled exceptionally well
16 November 2014 | by adams_amy79See all my reviews

An honest look at death. I am grateful to have stumbled upon it. With the holidays around the corner, I am struggling with all the loss in my life, most recently, my father. It's uplifting and calming all at once. The film starts out showing death. During the first few minutes, I almost turned it off. Then it beautifully delved into the many facets of death and grief. I don't normally write reviews, but I could not help but share my experience about this film, because it helped me so much on so many levels. I loved when people shared a story after they lost someone they loved that proved we are still connected to our loved ones after they pass away. Highly recommend for all. I think the world would be a gentler place if everyone saw this movie.
