TRAILER / TICKETS
​ 
Defining Hope is a must see documentary film that weaves the stories of patients with life-threatening illness, and the nurses who guide them as they make choices about how they want to live, how much medical technology they can accept, what they hope for and how that hope evolves. It is about optimism and helps us define what 'quality of life' really means. In the past three months, the film has been screened at over 150 theaters all across the United States and is coming back to NYC for the additional screening.
