Story

Far from any embellishment, a story based on facts about the life of professor Zbigniew Religa, who performed the first successful heart transplant in the communist Poland in the ‘80s. A portrait of an extraordinary human being who dared to challenge the existing rules under extremely adverse and difficult circumstances.
