Lullaby
Estranged from his family, a young man discovers his father has decided to take himself off life support in forty-eight hours time. During this intensely condensed period, a lifetime of drama plays out. The dad fights a zero sum game to reclaim all that his illness stole from his family. A debate rages on patients' rights and what it truly means to be free. The son reconciles with his father, reconnects with his mother, sister, and his love, and reclaims his voice through two unlikely catalysts: a young, wise-beyond-her-years patient, and a no-nonsense nurse.
