Life Events

Written by Karolina Waclawiak
Life Events

Evelyn is on the verge of divorce and anxiously dreading the death of everyone she loves when she discovers a collective of “exit guides."

She enrolls in their training course, where she learns to provide companionship for terminally ill patients seeking a conscious departure. Sensitively observed and darkly funny, Life Events is a moving story of the human condition: the doldrums of loneliness, the regret of past mistakes, and the thrill of finding meaning—and love—where you least expect it.
