Heal the Living follows three seemingly unrelated stories that carefully weave together: a French teenager and his friends on a surfing road trip that leads to tragedy; a woman in another town who learns that her weak heart is beginning to fail and action must be taken; and two teams of doctors and medical experts who struggle through their day-to-day attempts to save lives. Ultimately, it is an impassioned story of personal connections that philosophically, spiritually and literally plumbs the depths of the human heart.

"Unusual in its story, unexpected in its structure, made with an unerring instinct for emotional connection, Heal the Living wallops us without ever overplaying its hand." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
