Deep In The Heart



Listen carefully: Can you hear your heart beat?

This is a film that holds your heart in its palm. It is a story of strong women and men in denial; it’s funny and sad, tender and gritty.

It reveals the growing toll on all our bodies of our sedentary, fast-food lives. Of how we live for today and pretend tomorrow never comes. But above all, it celebrates life and our will to survive.

Lisa, Ted, Greg and Pat face the emotional drama of major life-saving surgery that can add 20 years to their lives – but only if they can change the habits of a lifetime.

Like them, we all take health for granted. Because bad things happen to other people, not us.

Shhh. Do you sense your heart beating? Can you feel its rhythm coursing though your veins?
