Death is something we will all one day face. So why is it so hard for doctors to talk with their patients about dying? How can the medical profession better help people navigate the final chapters of their lives with confidence, direction, and purpose? In this film, renowned surgeon and writer Atul Gawande teams with FRONTLINE to bring his personal journey- and the stories of his patients and their families- to life, and challenges us to reexamine how we think about death and dying. Having a conversation around the question "What are your priorities if your time is limited?" can empower patients to live their lives fully.
