Journey Home: A Dialysis Story
Shot over three years, this 48 minute documentary film follows two men who buck convention to take responsibility for their own health. Both men are dialysis patients, both named Ken, and both are unstoppable in their transition to home hemodialysis.
Although tethered to a dialysis machine, they refuse to let the medical system decide how they’ll live. At times the perceived risks and hurdles seem insurmountable, but, with the guidance of a supportive healthcare team, they persevere, and the rewards are worth it.
