Life is Awesome

Życie to rewelacja

Directing: Tadeusz Król


Two years after her son’s tragic death, Teresa Anielak sets out on a quest to find the recipient of her son’s heart, which she donated shortly after he was declared brain-dead. The task is not easy since Poland’s official policy regarding organ donation protects the identity of both the recipients and the donor. Alongside her story we see and hear emotional stories and thoughts of several heart recipients and families who donated organs of their tragically deceased loved ones. Fragments of a real life heart transplant operation are inserted into the film as illustration to the stories and allow the viewer to witness this miraculous procedure.
