The Alternative

A project in development




The Alternative:

An exploratory and affirming series about a support group for terminal cancer patients from diverse backgrounds. Despite strong prejudices, the group slowly learns to have empathy for each other. Ultimately this leads many in the group to discover they’ve never felt more alive than spending their last months with people they thought they hated. Despite it’s social and psychological intent, this is also a medical series and takes the unique perspective of the patients rather than the medical practitioners.
