Synopsis

Dr. Akiva Tamir is an Israeli paediatric cardiologist sent to Africa to perform lifesaving operations in Tanzania, where five children die every day from heart conditions. Together with his team, Dr. Tamir examines hundreds of children, of which only a handful can receive treatment. When 6 year-old Julius arrives to the clinic in critical condition, the doctors are forced to choose whether to operate on the child, who has very little chance of surviving.

A Heartbeat Away is a riveting human drama that takes viewers on an emotional roller-coaster, swinging on the pendulum between science and faith, hope and despair, life and death.
