Transplant: A Gift of Life

Premiered November 2012

Transplant: A Gift for Life features the human side of advanced medicine. A daughter offers to donate half of her liver to save her father's life; the recipient of a lung transplant reaches out to his deceased donor's family; two mothers nurse their sons through multiple transplants, and only one gets a happy ending. Told with intimacy and honesty, the film spotlights not only the science behind transplantation, but offers a view into the ethical and moral dilemmas in modern medicine.
