November 10, 1978
A collection of real and fictional footage, this pseudo-documentary follows Dr. Francis Gross as he tries to construct an understanding of the way people express their last few moments before succumbing to death. Each death example differs from the next, and death is the only unifying theme throughout the different images. We see people die from atrocities they commit to simple work accidents. As a coroner, Dr. Gross tends to sway from sympathetic to intrigued.
