Description

This feature documentary tells the story of Canadian volunteers, plastic surgeons and nurses at the Main Military Clinical Hospital in Kyiv, Ukraine. They help make a difference in the lives of wounded Ukrainian soldiers, victims of Russia’s invasion of eastern Ukraine. Learning from each other, Canadian and Ukrainian medical professionals perform complex reconstructive surgical procedures resulting from sniper fire and explosions. By means of interviews, rare stock shots and photos, Recovery Room shows the resilience of human kind giving hope to patients affected by the conflict. The scars of war and psychological trauma affects everyone involved. They all have a common dream of independence, peace and freedom.
