(From HBO website) Tales from the Organ Trade explores the controversial practice of black-market organ trafficking: from the street-level brokers who solicit kidney donors, to the rogue surgeons who perform the operations; from the impoverished donors willing to sacrifice a part of their bodies for a quick payday, to the desperate patients who face the agonizing choice of obeying the law or saving their lives.
Tales from the Organ Trade airs on HBO Monday, November 4, 2013 at 9PM
