Lessons For The Living – The Film

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 life and death. Among them, a teenager escapes from the drama of high school, a hard-edged corporate lawyer searches for meaning 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 a timely look at what it means to face death. Lessons for the Living shows that the dying have a great deal to offer the living.
