This documentary tells the stories of patients whose lives have been dramatically changed as a result of Dr. John Graham-Pole and poetry therapist John Fox's incorporation of poetry into their recovery process. At a time when Americans have grown cynical about health-care, this film affirms that poetry and art can build understanding and compassion between doctor and patient and help facilitate healing among the most critically ill.
