The mother of a boy on a life support machine asks for Joe's help and tells him something which changes everything. With Alun Armstrong and Deborah Findlay.
By Michael Chaplin. The parents of a young boy grievously injured in a cycling accident face the terrible decision of whether to leave him on a life-support machine indefinitely - or to switch it off.
The boy's mother asks Joe to help her husband face up to the decision - and tells Joe something which changes everything.
Alun Armstrong and Deborah Findlay star as the ex-Durham miner and the University philosopher who, together, bring human compassion and philosophy to bear in facing up to some of life's hardest dilemmas.
