Alexis has a life-threatening disease. She spends her time in the wooded expanse of northern Scotland, where she takes care of dozens of others who are also sick, wounded, or dying. Some have terminal cancer; some were about to be killed because of their disabilities; some were saved from slaughterhouses. Alexis provides palliative care for animals. This film follows Alexis as she tirelessly tries to nurse a neglected sheep back to health. This quiet reflection on kindness in the face of death intimately explores the fragility and strength that comes from dedicating your life to the care of others.
