The film follows the stories of Australians of all ages and different stages of life-limiting illness, including a very special family in our care – the Schneiders. Throughout the film, mum Mel shares her experience of palliative care with her son Wil, aged 11, and daughter Elle, who sadly died at 13 days old.
