“Being Mortal” delves into the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying and explores the relationships between patients and their doctors.

When Dr. Gawande’s own father gets cancer, his search for answers about how to best care for the dying becomes a personal quest.
