How did a country that until 2010 had no organ donation system, become one of the world's organ transplant leaders? For years, China claimed that the organs came from executed prisoners, but the numbers didn't add up. Short wait times and a seemingly endless supply of donors, made China a popular destination for transplant surgeries that can take years of waiting in other countries. But the question no one was asking is where do these organs come from?. Until a group of researchers, including human rights lawyer David Matas and former Canadian MP David Kilgour, decided to investigate this mystery and found answers that were almost too shocking to believe. The story of how these two Nobel Peace Prize nominees pieced together the chilling evidence and began the battle against an industrial-scale crime against humanity, is a riveting tale of both personal triumphs and unimaginable horror. Exposing a form of evil we have yet to see on this planet.. Peabody Award for Documentary (2015). Association of International Broadcasters Award for Best International Investigative Documentary.
