As Erin's body begins to deteriorate, she shares the last part of her journey and faces the reality of dying. Her honesty and courage shine through even when choosing how and when to die. Part Two shares deeply revealing stories from others about Erin's process after death and how she 'bridges' the two worlds through metaphysical forms of communication.
