Documentary shot over the course of one winter in the palliative care unit of the Salvation Army Toronto Grace Health Centre. It shows the last days of five people. Carmela is an elderly, religious Italian-Canadian with a daughter and grandchildren; she shares a room with Joyce, who is reluctant to take painkillers because she is afraid she will die in her sleep. Eda’s cancer has gone into remission, granting her a renewed sense of hope and inspiring her to seek a new apartment outside the hospital. Rick, a former Satan’s Choice biker who resists the discipline of the hospital, says he would rather die in a shootout than a hospital bed. Lloyd suffers from brain cancer and is supported by the constant presence of his parents and Norm, his partner of thirty years.
