Two medical students grimaced at what laid before them – a shrivelled body of a man. There was nothing exceptional about him. He was just another specimen.
Except that he woke up when they removed his heart.
It belonged not to him. It belonged to a woman, his wife. He had awoken, because he was a man whose heart knew what it wanted.
And off they went, on an adventure, only to find that the truth about his life was better kept a secret even now in death.
Where do broken souls go, when the heart cannot find its beat anymore?
Crushed, he returned from cheating life and death, from love to despair, and back on the slab.
He would give up his heart, but not before having his second chance, again.
Style icon Tavi Gevinson narrates the film, together with Christopher Lloyd and Kathy Bates. Tavi also sang the cover of Pet Shop Boys’ 1988 hit, Heart.
