At some point in everyone's life, thoughts turn to death. A subject that most people like to skirt around, it is tackled head on in this award-winning documentary from director Patrick Shen. Shen identifies death as one of the underlying factors in causing modern day malaise and examines various responses to the specter of death as it looms large over our heads. Positing the theory that death is inherently buried in everything we do, Shen lets his theory unravel in an interesting and informative manner. Travelling the globe, the director pools his ideas from an array of sources, including expert commentary from scholars such as Ernest Becker and Sheldon Solomon.

In Japan, one couple gets divorced every 2 minutes. Often, the wife initiates the split. Many women say their partners don't understand their feelings, while many husbands seem unaware of the daily stress this can create. The latest research suggests that common marital misunderstandings are rooted in differences between the male and female brain. The problems couples experience today are the result of millions of years of evolution. This program uses findings from neuroscience to explore the issue, and suggests ways for couples to strengthen their bonds.
