Abstract:

The patients of the renal unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital are living with conditions that cannot be completely cured. In this film, Drs. Lesley Rees, Rukshana Shroff, and Sarah Ledermann face complex decisions in a never-ending cycle of treatment: 4-month-old Alisha was born with kidney failure, and the staff must keep her alive until she grows big enough to receive a kidney transplant; 14-year-old Imaan's kidneys are slowly poisoning her, and doctors want to remove them, but she refuses to have the operation; Bethany was born with mental and physical disabilities, including poorly functioning kidneys, and her father is keen to donate his kidney, but the staff must decide whether she is likely to survive a transplant.
