Dying at a Hospital
(Byôin de shinu to iu koto)


Patients spend their last days in hospital. Relatives and colleagues visit them. They talk about various things: the weather, work at the office, the latest birth. But they never talk about the illness. Until the day when patients cannot stand the ignorance in which doctors keep them any longer. When trust and equality are restored between doctors and patients, death which has been hovering since the beginning of the film as an inevitable conclusion is not scary any more.
