A teenaged boy goes on a road trip with friends to the sea. A woman learns that her health is worsening. The staff at a regional hospital valiantly endeavors to save lives. These disparate narrative threads will gradually weave into an absorbing whole in this third feature from the talented Ivorian director Katell Quillévéré.

Based on the Booker-long-listed novel by Maylis de Kerangal, Heal the Living is an intense yet elegantly crafted film, exploring the ways that strangers can come together in times of crisis and hope can emerge from the most despairing of situations.
