A look into the underground world of trafficking human body parts.
Tales from the Organ Trade is a gritty and unflinching descent into the shadowy world of black-market organ trafficking: the street-level brokers the rogue surgeons, the impoverished men and women who are willing to sacrifice a slice of their own bodies for a quick payday, and the desperate patients who face the agonizing choice of obeying the law or saving their lives.Every year thousands of organs are bought and sold on a black market that flourishes in dozens of countries where the rule of law is a hostage to the dollar sign. With unprecedented access to all the players, the film explores the legal, moral and ethical issues involved in this complex life and death drama.This is not a black and white story of exploitation, but rather, a nuanced and complex story that compels you to explore your own moral and ethical beliefs. This is a world where the villains often save lives and the medical establishment, helpless, too often watches people die. Where the victims often walk away content and the buyers of organs - the recipients - return home with a new lease on life.Filled with real people from 3 continents forced into the literal decision of a lifetime, Tales from the Organ Trade is a street level journey into the world of the black market organ trade.
