compassion. The documentary tells the story of two unique and engaging
characters. One is Ellie, who embarks on an unpredictable journey of
twists and turns, determined to give away one of her kidneys. Five

unfold over the course of four years. Why are we unnerved by the idea
of such an extreme gift?
Director Jan Krawitz will be in attendance for
Q&A following the film.
