AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Faith, a seventy-seven year old woman is gravely ill. The family must decide whether her intensive care treatment should be prolonged. Her husband Des loves her dearly and can’t bear to have any part in ending her life, but her three children vary sharply in their attitudes. The power of modern medicine can prolong life but is there any point if the life prolonged is poor? The family conflict becomes intense, generating both dark humour and shock as devastating family secrets are inevitably revealed.' Source: www.noosalongweekend.com/ (Sighted 21/06/2011).
