Moving through New York City's fast-pace, life often seems a blur. Yet, within this city, a group of people quietly seek solace by spending time with the dying.
Lessons for the Living reveals a unique subculture of Hospice volunteers as they reflect on their experiences and philosophies of death. Among them, a teenager escapes from the drama of high school, a hard-edged corporate lawyer searches for meaning, a bi-polar man teeters on the edge of his own mortality, a shamanic healer finds peace in the hospice halls and a terminally ill woman faces her own death with unexpected humor and grace.
As the baby boomer generation nears its end, this film offers us all a timely look at what it means to face death - whether it be our own or someone else's. Lessons for the Living shows that the dying have a great deal to offer the living.
