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. From Manila to Istanbul, from Colorado to Kosovo, from Toronto to Tel Aviv, the film brings to the screen a compelling cast whom fate has brought together where the gift of life meets the shadow of death.

Need to know about Kidney Disease
27 November 2013 | by vaiaserimianSee all my reviews

Very educating on the topic that is understated for so long.

Organ donation can have it's hush-hush moments between families but for those in need - it's big. And even bigger is the organ trade all around the world, especially in third world countries. Not always is it done legally!

The producers, writers and everyone else involved did an amazing job describing their path, their triumph and their luck of opportunity. Kidney disease is a growing problem and it needs to be more talked about. There needs to be more preventative measures (if possible) to avoid needing dialysis and there needs to be more education regarding the symptoms and the like.

I would love to watch it again since I only caught the last hour.
