Summary:
"An Australian intensive care doctor explores moral and ethical questions about ongoing life-support for our elderly. Over the past decade hospital intensive care wards in Australia have been filling up with elderly patients in their 80s, and 90s with no realistic chance of recovery. Fuelled by hope and the belief that modern medicine will allow our lives to go on forever, are we failing to manage the passage between life and death? This film examines a modern day medical dilemma of our own making by following Geelong Hospital senior intensive care doctor Charlie Corke who asks some of the most pressing and difficult questions facing modern medicine." -- website.
