Mortal addresses the seismic shift in how the population is now viewing life and death. Reflecting the a paradigm shift that has the enormous baby boomer population deciding how they want to live the rest of their lives "Mortal" celebrates the importance of end-of-life as much as the beginning of life by beginning important conversations regarding life and end of life choices - everything from financial investing and retirement planning, to hospice, palliative care and burial options.

"Mortal" is a joyous celebration of life that presents stories that inspire people to engage in defining life choices and decisions that ultimately free us to live our best life fully and fearlessly. This film is a must see for anyone contemplating life's biggest decisions.
