When a Western entrepreneur in China discovers that his heart transplant came from a vast organ harvesting enterprise, he has to risk everything to save a woman from becoming the next victim. This riveting, award-winning drama is based on real-life events and stars Anastasia Lin, the current Miss World Canada, who was prevented from competing in China because of her outspoken political views. Directed by Leon Lee, who brought us the Peabody Award­-winning documentary Human Harvest.
