Heal the Living


Contemporary World Cinema | 2016 | 104 minutes

Stranger Says:

Three boys drive along an open road. The road turns into ocean waves. One particularly huge wave crashes over them—and us. Darkness. We wake up from it, but Simon doesn’t. He’s brain-dead. What follows this surreal opening is a panoramic picture of the lives that remain: a girl he loved and his parents, for one. But for another: the recipient of his donated heart. And the woman she loves and her sons. Delicate scenes are sutured together moment-by-moment as characters endure loss and allow each other hope. Watch to feel your own heart opened. (JESSICA FU)
