Every year, people die on the waiting list for new organs. Through reconstructions this dramatic film explores the dilemmas, myths and prejudices which arise for those faced with the decision to donate.
Globally there are tens of thousands of critically-ill patients desperate for a new organ. Yet across Europe there's little public information about organ donation. This Danish film sheds light on the sensitive subject, following the experiences of everyone involved in the process: from the young girl injured in a traffic accident and declared brain dead, to the relatives forced to confront the decision of organ donation and the patient receiving a new heart and a "new life".
