A documentary about extraordinary work of surgeons from a hospital in Trzebnica. Since the 1970s they’ve been pioneers in the field of organ transplantation. In 1971 they carried out the first and transplant in Europe. In 1988 they transplanted two legs to a little girl, to this day, now as an adult woman she’s a fan of dancing. In 2006, 12 years after the accident, they transplanted a hand. The filmmakers have reached out to these patients and doctors many years after to retell their stories.
