A journey into the intimate heart of a family when a life-limiting illness comes to stay. Meet four remarkable people – Fiona, Gordon, Lucy and Emily – one of whom is unwell, all of whom are living with illness. How does your outlook change when you discover you have ‘a dying parent’? How do your friends respond? How do you acknowledge ‘the elephant in the room’? Welcome to the Cook household, Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire.
The Long Goodbye was commissioned by Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief – an alliance helping to create a Scotland which is more open about death, dying and bereavement. Visit www.goodlifedeathgrief.org.uk
