Summary
H.O.T. is a shocking inquiry which exposes the protagonists of this global trade: the donors, often coerced or tricked into having a part of their body removed, with the false promise of a job or of receiving a substantial amount of money, which is, more often than not, never delivered; but also the mediators, the organ-hunters, and the criminals who organize the smuggling of people and organs across different countries and continents, with the illicit aid of corrupt officials and private clinics. Above all, we meet the surgeons who are paid directly, who pretend they don’t know of the illicit dealings, but are often in league with organized crime.. In contrast, we meet honest and courageous policemen, the journalists who try to expose the problem, the researchers who carry out in-depth analyses of the phenomenon, and parents who have had their children assassinated for the removal of their organs.. These authentic witnesses, depict an elaborate web between good and bad, and between the desperation and greed which pervades countries from South America to Asia, from Europe to the Middle East.. The film travels through the shantytowns of Recife in Brazil, the mountain villages of Nepal, the streets of Kathmandu, the hospitals in South Africa, the private clinics of Bombay, and the universities and private clinics throughout the world.. A unique report of a brutal scar on humanity at the beginning of the 21st Century.
