The D-Word

“SOMETHING HAPPENS BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE THAT IS TRANSCENDENT.”

Chairs are scattered all along the gracious lawn outside the hospice unit - haphazardly left from the conversations once had. Leon tells us about his own conversations had with the dying - many of whom have alzheimers.

Inside, we meet Trudi, a hospice patient, who engages with Leon over a game of cards as if it were just another day. Trudi may forget. But Leon will remember this day forever.
