    • Synopsis
    • Eight Rwandan children leave their families behind to embark on a life or death journey seeking high-risk heart surgery in Sudan. Their hearts ravaged by a treatable disease from childhood strep throat, the kids have only months to live. Open Heart reveals the intertwined endeavors of Dr. Emmanuel, Rwanda's lone government cardiologist as he fights to save the lives of his young patients, and Italian Dr. Gino Strada, the Salam Center’s head surgeon who must convince President Omar Al-Bashir to keep Africa's only link to life-saving cardiac surgery free of charge for the millions who need it.
