Summary, etc.: In the children's ward of St Luke's Hospital, Sam Cooper (9) is waiting at the top of the transplant list for a new liver. His mother, Dr Lisa Cooper (40), head of cardiac surgery, feels completely helpless, unable to save her son, despite saving her patients' lives every single day. When a liver finally becomes available it gets destroyed en route to the hospital. Getting new liver in illegal black market becomes Lisa's only option. She turns her back on the health system she has devoted her life to and with her son secretly heads off to New Day Clinic in East Africa. Once behind the derelict walls of the facility, Sam is taken from her and used as a pawn to force Lisa into performing a heart transplant for a wealthy American patient. Knowing that in order to harvest a heart and perform the transplant, Lisa will need to take the life of a young, innocent girl to get Sam back - she is faced with the devastating reality that some lives are simply more valuable. This intense medical thriller based on true events brings to light darkest and most dangerous aspects of human organs trafficking in Africa.
