A black and white cat strolls down the quiet corridor of Sydneyâ€™s Sacred Heart Hospice. In the surrounding rooms, people lie dying. â€˜Death is not something our culture does well,â€™ says Associative Professor Richard Chye, Sacred Heartâ€™s Director of Palliative Care. â€˜We approach dying as if it is something that doesnâ€™t happen very often.â€™ For Mark, Katie and Robert it is about to happen now. As they travel towards death, startling truths emerge. In the face of death, they see life. Where they expected to find fear, some will find profound happiness. And all will discover that death is not a light that goes out, but a light that goes on.
