Summary
Every 60 minutes a human organ is sold illicitly. Can you put yourself in the place of a buyer? A seller? What would you do if your life depended on it? This riveting, gritty, and unflinching film explores the shadowy life and death world of international black market organ trafficking, delving deeply into the legal, and ethical issues that swirl around its center, its fringes, and its darkest depths. Street-level brokers, rogue surgeons, exploitation and salvation of the rich and the impoverished -- it's an infernal drama of endless moral complexity, which this film captures with an incredibly nimble grace, compassion, and even-handedness. Filmed in Manila, Istanbul, Kosovo, Tel Aviv and Moldova among other places
