Set in the near future, Cameron (Mahershala Ali) is a loving husband and father who is expecting his second child with his wife Poppy (Naomie Harris). When he is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief. Written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary, Swan Song explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love.
