A Certain Kind of Death

This unusual but deep documentary takes you to the lives or actually deaths of those who have no next of kin.  What happens to the many who die every year with no one to claim them as family or friend?  The process is long, detailed and at times sad.  Not necessarily a tear jerker, this documentary left me in silence as the thoughts of my own mortality came to light.  As I think about the lives these people encountered, the stories they had, all gone and soon to be forgotten as will probably be the story for many people.   I guess no one thinks they end up like this.  Yes, we all know we die, but actually thinking about the bones turning into ash and all the things one will leave behind.  Leaves you speechless in knowing that one day, you too will have your own box.
