We are in a crisis: While Canada consistently has one of the worst organ donor rates in the Western world, its hospitals are overcrowded with patients who desperately need an organ transplant. And within Canada, Alberta is the province with the lowest donor rates. 40 percent of patients die while waiting for an organ.

Strongly character driven, the one-hour documentary The Ward features the work of the nurses, surgeons and physicians at the University Hospital in Edmonton, and showcases the many challenges in the lives of the patients, capturing their daily trials and triumphs in their battle for survival.
