Difficulties in writing creative non-fiction.

I’m having great difficulty with ending a piece of non-fiction I’m currently re-working.  I guess the question with non-fiction is that of economy; at what point does the story end, and which of many details do you choose to include?  Which details are important to the point of the narrative?  What IS the point of the narrative?  There are so many different ways of both approaching, and ending, a narrative that has actually happened – which do you choose to tell, and why?  How is it that the ending I have right now feels too brief, but there seems to be nothing else of interest of purpose to say?  How can I change the tone so that it more aligns with the point of the narrative?  I can change the tone of the narrative 6,000 times and it would still be the same story, told in 6,000 different ways; which is the right way?
