Hundreds of thousands of people die each year of kidney failure. Most of them are simply unable to find a donor due to strictly regulated medical systems. Demand far outweighs supply, so desperate patients turn to the black market, where in developing countries the poorest sell their organs. The film crew travelled to the USA, the Philippines, Kosovo, Turkey, Israel, Canada and Moldova to collect testimony from donors, patients, doctors and prosecutors. This investigative documentary unleashes a debate about the ethical and legal aspects of the global trade in human organs and poses a provocative question: Is it moral to save one's own life at the expense of the quality of someone else's?
