The movie revolves around illegal kidney harvesting. Immigrants sell their kidneys to get doctored passports so that they can stay in the United Kingdom. In the scene the “win/win” nature of kidney transplants is explored. There are serious ethical dimensions here as well as the exploitation of the poor. The scene will raise eyebrows and prompt a spirited discussion of the normative aspects of selling kidneys.
