Heal The Living: Universal health

In a series of stark scenes Katell Quillévéré destroys one life and saves another. When a teenager sustains unrecoverable brain damage in an early morning car accident, the organs within his stable body take on an urgency of their own. The medical professionals know the brain is dead long before they receive the scans detailing the internal haemorrhaging. They maintain the still breathing corpse long enough for his parents to say goodbye. They then have to ask their permission to extract the healthy tissues for donation, the seventeen year old never had a chance to make his intentions clear.
