Over My Dead Body

A film by Brigitte Poupart

Synopsis

Feature length, documentary, HD,
colour, 2011

Dave St-Pierre, 34, has cystic fibrosis. The average life expectancy of sufferers is 37. Dave’s doctors have given him only two more years to live, unless he receives a lung transplant.

Dave is fifth on the transplant waiting list when he receives a call from the doctor.
A donor has been found and the lungs are being rushed to the operating room for final testing. Dave has two hours to get to the hospital. Two hours that might be his last two hours of life, if the operation doesn’t work. Or the procedure might give him new hope. This film is the story of a man waiting for life or death.
