Synopsis

This film is the result of a promise made between the filmmakers and a patient dying of cancer on the day of their departure from the Heart Lotus Ward. The Heart Lotus Ward is the headquarter of the palliative care center of the Buddhist Tzu Chi General Hospital in Hualien. Aided by professionals and volunteers, the patients spend the final phase of their lives here. At the final stop in life, heart is the only thing to be seen.
