Gabin Verdet (ctr.), Kool Shen and Emmanuelle Seigner in Heal the Living

The film weaves together three seemingly unrelated stories: 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.

Featured in the cast is Emmanuelle Seigner (Venus in Fur), Tahar Rahim (Grand Central, A Prophet), Anne Dorval (Mommy) and screen newcomer Gabin Verdet.

Presented in French with English subtitles, the Blu-ray and DVD editions of the movie include an interview with the director.
