How do we deal with dying? Most of us look away, but in the case of the Zagar family, they look closer.

A father and son have a contest to take the best pictures of their dying grandpa; the result is an up-close portrait of death.

Grandpa won the Best Documentary: Bronze Award in the 2007 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. The story was edited by Jad Abumrad and Ellen Horne.
