Audience Reviews for Dying at Grace

this documentary is very hard to watch. it is what and how we will all end up looking like and feeling. u see the last days months of these individuals....leading to their demise. and all are mostly natural causes. You can see death in their yellow stained faces. amazing documentary that has left a deep impression on my soul for the rest of my dyng days.
