Heal the Living

Nova Exclusive! Twenty four hours following two families faced with a life-changing decision in the aftermath of an unthinkable tragedy, HEAL THE LIVING is director Katell Quillévéré’s superbly eloquent drama.

In the port city of Le Havre, a young surfer called Simon is involved in a serious car accident. His parents (Emmanuelle Seigner and Kool Shen) arrive at the hospital to find their son on life support and are presented with a terrible choice: they could lose their son but in the process he could offer hope for someone else. Miles away in Paris, Claire (Anne Dorval) is informed that the degenerative heart condition she has been living with has worsened, and that a new heart is the only chance of life left to her.

One family’s tragedy becomes the chance for another family’s miracle as the lives of Simon and Claire are brought together by the possibility of an organ transplant. A critically acclaimed examination of the fragility of life, love and death, Quillévéré’s moving and humanist filmmaking is a transformative experience.
