Seven Songs for a Long Life

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Hospice care is rarely associated with singing and laughter, but at Strathcarron it’s different. At this remarkable Scottish hospice centre, patients face pain, uncertainty and the possibility of life’s end with song and humour.
The documentary includes a hit parade of tunes belted out by patients and care-givers alike between reflections on life, love and mortality. Sinatra and R.E.M. have never been sung with more heart. The film illuminates a journey we will all take eventually, and shows how the songs we love best can help guide us. An intimate story behind our changing relationship with death.
