Inspiring story. Watching men change emotionally as they watch fellow inmates rapidly break down medically. Watching this poor guy have to wear arm/leg irons and walk into a van, so he could get tested at a proper hospital and get his fatal diagnosis. He was very sick medically but they still treated him like a convict. The warden, staff and volunteers of the hospice are all special people in my opinion. No one wants to die alone...

Very touching and at times you forget that the volunteers and dying men are criminals sentenced to serve years and years in prison for murder, armed robbery ...
