Every day in the U.S. about twenty people die waiting for transplant organs, because not enough of us are donors. Dying To Live tells the inspiring stories of four hopeful organ recipients as they struggle to stay alive long enough to reach the top of the long waiting list. The documentary also brings us into the lives of two donors - a young man who dies and leaves a liver to one of the people followed in the documentary, and a courageous woman who makes the remarkable decision to donate a kidney to a person she has never met. Produced over the course of a year and a half in 1080p Hi-Def, Dying To Live has received a HUGO award from the Chicago International Film Festival, a regional Emmy nomination, and an honorable mention award from the Los Angeles International Film Festival.
