In 1987, France’s first medical assistance unit for the terminally ill was established. Psychologist Marie Hennezel was part of that very first team. Her daily work with the dying has given her a special perspective on the end of life she shares in this film. Shot during an AIDS seminar she gave in the Moroccan Sahara, the desert surroundings provide a vivid resonance to her moving thoughts and reflections on death and dying. The film is punctuated by interviews with young children who share their understanding of death with answers that are naïve, profound, and universal.
