A young boy is confronted by the painful reality of his beloved grandfather’s imminent death. We share not only in their feelings, but in the family’s refusal to face the facts and in the resulting tensions which finally give way to an acceptance of the continuity of life. “The question ‘should the patient be told?” is answered by this beautiful film in a powerful way.” – Death Education.
