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”.
