Why See The Tin Woman?


What happens when you receive the gift of a new life, but it doesn't turn out to be as wonderful as everybody makes out? This is the dilemna faced by a heart transplant patient, who sets out to meet the family of the donor, and finds herself lost and depressed, despite her gift of life.

Written by Sean Grennan, this partially true story came to be over the course of an Indian meal with his sister. The story focuses on a heart patient called Joy, who enters a downward spiral when she questions whether or not she is worthy of this second chance of life. In the meantime, we also meet the parents of Jack, the heart donor in question, who are deep in mourning. When Joy is urged by her friend to seek closure for her new heart by meeting Jack's parents, their encounter brings up harsh truths and memories for everybody involved, especially Jack's younger sister. At times humorous and other times poignant, this sensitive portrait of loss and family has garnered rave reviews from critics.
