About the DVD
In one 12-hour hospital shift in the ER a veteran male nurse, struggling with the haunting guilt of his brother s drowning, is forced to train a new nurse. The two are at odds throughout the story, because, while they both struggle with the spiritual turmoil of right and wrong, they both come to very different philosophies. One plays life-saving nurse. The other plays God and allows patients to die or even helps them to die.

My Take on the DVD
This drama will keep you riveted to the story, the characters, and the situations they encounter while working at a hospital. A veteran nurse must train a new nurse and they seem to be constantly at odds with each other.

What would you do if you were a nurse or doctor and someone asked you to help them die? How would you feel if your family took away your desire to not be resuscitated and you went into cardiac arrest? These questions and more are centered in this movie.

The movie will make you think of life and death. It will make you evaluate your own ideas about terminal illness . What decisions would you have made if you were making those decisions in the movie as a nurse or doctor?

It is an emotional movie but shows the human side of real medical professionals each day. I think you will find this movie worth watching and discussing.
