'To Be or Not to Be' is the story of Anik Avanessian, a young woman suffering from a cardiac insufficiency that has caused her health to deteriorate to the point where she can no longer walk or speak without difficulty. With time running out, Anik is desperate for a heart transplant, but with her name just one on a list of 200, the chances of finding a suitable heart become increasingly unlikely. Anik's future rests in her ability, with her doctor, to convince the family of a brain-dead man to release their loved one's heart, so that it might live on in her. When it transpires that the man is the son of a disreputable criminal family, things go from bad to worse. A suspenseful tale of a woman doing her best to overcome the unimaginable, this film delivers an emotional punch.
