HEAL THE LIVING is a French drama about a young surfer and a middle aged woman who become inextricably connected after a fatal car crash.

Injury detail

During scenes of surgery bloody incisions are seen being made on patients' chests; a heart is seen pumping in a chest cavity before it is removed from a patient's body and transplanted into another patient.

Sex

A man kisses a woman's neck and breasts before it's implied that he performs cunnilingus on her. There is also a passing verbal reference to pornography.

There are scenes of emotional upset when a man and a woman are told that their child is braindead and that they must decide whether to agree to organ donation. There are also scenes of smoking.
