Synopsis: The End demystifies death by following the work of end-of-life specialist Caroline Price and her patient Jane. Palliative carers are an immense source of knowledge on one of life’s biggest taboos. For them, death is daily business, and the dying process, with its familiar rhythms and patterns, is not a mystery. Through Caroline and Jane we take an unwavering look at the process of dying and the emotions, issues and life lessons that surface at the end.
